MARK MARTIN TAURUS UPDATE (AS OF 5:25 P.M.)

Crew chief Pat Tryson gave an update of the team's plans regarding the No. 6 Viagra Taurus that was involved in an accident during the second Gatorade Duel 150.

PAT TRYSON, Crew Chief - No. 6 Viagra Taurus

"Our plan is to fix that car. It was the better of our two cars when we were down here testing as far as racing. It's been really good in practice. Mark's been really happy with it, so we're just gonna stay late and work on it. We'll work all day on it tomorrow and try to get it ready for Saturday's practice. Hopefully, we'll get it back like it was and we'll have a shot at winning the race."

HOW MUCH WORK IS THERE? "There's a lot of work. We have to fix the right-hand part of the nose and the lower part in the center, and then the left-rear quarter and the decklid we've got to fix. The suspension was OK, so that's good. It's just mainly sheetmetal stuff, but it's a lot of work. We're committed to giving Mark everything we've got this year. He feels a whole lot better about that car, so we just need to fix it and try to win the 500."

SO YOU DON'T FORESEE ANY PRACTICE AT ALL ON FRIDAY. "Our plan right now is to not practice tomorrow and just get it ready for Saturday's practice. Mark doesn't care if he practices it at all, but we want to practice on Saturday just to make sure everything is OK."
