STERLING MARLIN QUOTES:

"I'm looking forward to racing under the lights this weekend at Richmond. Going back there to race will just be the same deal. The wreck could have happened anywhere. I'm not going to have to adjust or anything. We'll just be doing the same thing we've done all year, trying to win. I love Saturday night racing. I wish we had more races like this during the year."
