QUOTES

Jimmy Spencer, driver of the No. 41 Target Dodge Intrepid R/T:

“ Las Vegas is one of the greatest places we visit on the circuit. It’s a great place for the drivers and their families to go and for all of the team members to go and get out to the shops and the great restaurants. Not only do I like going to Vegas for the atmosphere, I really like racing there. You need a car that will handle well at that track. We’ve had good luck there in the past and I look forward to racing there every season.”

“ Every race, Team Target is getting stronger. Doug, Andy and I are getting stronger and stronger and we’ll eventually get the Target Dodge in the top-10 in points. We are going through some growing pains. Last weekend at Rockingham we had some growing pains and I’m sure we’ll have some at Vegas and Atlanta.”
