DARRELL WALTRIP, NO. 14 CONSECO PONTIAC GRAND PRIX (ran second Saturday practice session for Stacy Compton):

HOW DID THE CAR FEEL IN PRACTICE?

"It felt pretty good, actually. As they say, 'There are some issues.' But, only having 45 minutes and never having been in the car before - I was just trying to give them information based on what the track is going to be like tomorrow. After this truck race, it's going to be a little bit different. The things I was feeling, I was just trying to give them information to give them a direction to go in for tomorrow. The car was way too tight - sliding the nose in the middle of the corner. That's Martinsville. They've got to get that out of there, so they'll probably come off the front springs a little bit and adjust the shocks a little bit. But, I think it'll be pretty good."

YOU'VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF WORK THIS WEEKEND...

"Well, I really am and I'm feeling it, too. When I went to bed last night, I was tired."

HOW MUCH FUN HAVE YOU HAD THIS WEEKEND?

"It's good to be down here with all the guys, getting information and just renewing old relationships - talking about cars and what they're doing, what they're not doing and what you can do to make them do what you want them to. That's been a lot of fun."

FOR HOW LONG DOES THIS EXPERIENCE - BEING BACK IN A RACE CAR - FEED THE ADDICTION?

"You know, it may just be aggravating it. It may just be like giving sugar to a kid."
