Dale Jr. Quotes:

"It's the usual deal: you hope a track surface ages to a point where you can run multiple grooves. It was so fast last year -- we were good enough to qualify and run up front, but if you hugged the low line, it made it really hard for someone to get past. There was so much grip it made it tough to run more than one groove. We had the same situation at the track at Chicago, which was built at the same time, and it was much better this year."

"I'll be happy if we have a much more calm Sunday afternoon than we did at Talladega. Once the race started, I forgot about my sore foot and I was hoping my heart could handle it. It was fun for the first 14 laps, then we got swept into that multi-car deal on pit lane, and it was wild and rowdy the rest of the day. This week, we'll have to grab the Bud Pole and then lead 'em all... how's that?"

The primary talent needed to be a successful politician: "It's the ability to foretell what will happen tomorrow, next month, and next year... and to explain afterward why it didn't happen." --Sir Winston Churchill
