Dale Jr. Quotes for Rockingham:

"It's great heading toward Rockingham with the confidence we gained at Phoenix. I may have to sit down and buy a Budweiser for the media guys that seem shocked this team can win at a non-restrictor plate track. If you're surprised, you need to pay attention. We've finished in the top-three ten times so far on almost every kind of track. That doesn't happen if you're just out there messing around. We've had a great season, and we've improved on every kind of track. We got a top-three on a road course, we won on a flat track, and now it looks like we have one hurdle left: Rockingham. It's the last track where we've just never figured it all out. I've never been completely comfortable, and it seems like we just need that extra little missing ingredient to get it done. But, we dodged the rain last week and were able to get some testing in, and I think we'll be improved. We've been better almost everywhere this season, so I expect to be better this week. Until there aren't any laps left, we're going to battle every lap to gain as many points as we can."

"Then we reached a point of fame where all of the screaming began. Screaming, it was everywhere. The world used us as an excuse to go mad, and then they blamed it on us. We were just the guys in the middle of the chaos inside a car or trapped in a hotel room or something. We couldn't go out, we couldn't do anything..."

--George Harrison, The Beatles
