Johnny Benson Rain Quotes

"Maybe we should think about starting a boat series in NASCAR. With as much rain as we have had today we could put on a pretty good show for the fans.

"As far as Winston Cup, this rain delay doesn't really matter a whole lot. Losing Thursday will put us on our normal weekend schedule of qualifying on Friday, practicing on Saturday and racing on Sunday. I'm sorry for the fans who were coming out tonight, but even Nascar has trouble getting Mother Nature to cooperate. I hear it isn't looking real good for tomorrow either, but I hope we can get practice and qualifying in.

"If we miss tomorrow then I think the crew chief's might start getting a little nervous. They all know Charlotte pretty well by now. But, last weekend's practice and the Winston were all about making your car good on short runs. This weekend in a 600-mile race you better be good on long runs. This is the longest race of the year, but if your car isn't good on the long runs then its going to seem this race is 1,000 miles not 600 miles."
