WALLACE ON THIS WEEK'S RACE IN CALIFORNIA--

"I really look forward to going to California. I know everyone says that, but it's especially true for California. It's a very different environment than we're used to racing at. It's really a big deal for NASCAR to be racing in Los Angeles. The track and all the facilities that surround it are awesome. They offer you so much and they'll help anyway they can. We really enjoy going there.

"We all put our heads together to figure out what we needed to do to improve our intermediate and speedway program. Todd [Holbert, lead engineer for Bill Davis Racing], Philippe and Frank all got together and came up with things to try in the tunnel, at the track in a test and at the track on race weekend. I think we have made some significant gains in those areas and we showed that with the improvement in how we ran in Atlanta compared to Las Vegas.

STACKER 2 TEAM TESTS AT KENTUCKY--

"We went to Kentucky Monday with both cars that are on their way to California. We tested both cars to figure out which car we wanted to race with at California. We strictly made race runs all day and finally decided to race the back up car from Texas. We feel like that was the better of the two and we should be in great shape for the race this weekend. Ricky our truck driver, left from the test and headed straight to California. We all left there with a lot of optimism for this weekend's race. We just need to qualify decent and have a good run."

WALLACE ON HOW THE TEAM IS PROGRESSING--

"Philippe [Lopez] and Frank [Stoddard] and both teams have really been working hard to get our cars better and improve our performance. I'm really proud of the way the two teams work together. They share everything and both try to complement each other in every way they can."
