Steve Park Notes & Quotes #1 Pennzoil Chevrolet DuraLube 400 North Carolina Motor Speedway (1.017- mile oval)
o Heading into Sunday's DuraLube 400 at North Carolina Motor Speedway, Steve Park behind the wheel of the #1 Pennzoil Chevrolet Monte Carlo hopes to use last year's information as a catapult to the team's first top-10 finish at the 1.017-mile oval.
o Steve Park and the Pennzoil team are focused for "The Rock" after a disappointing finish at Daytona when an overheating problem forced the #1 Monte Carlo into the pits several times, relegating them to a 31st- place finish.
o Although his best Winston Cup finish at Rockingham (15th) occurred last fall, Steve Park worked his way into a sixth-place finish during the Busch event in 1997.
"We have worked too hard all winter to let a first-race disappointment deter this Pennzoil team from its main goal – obtaining that first win," said Park. "With the success we had at Rockingham during the fall race last season, I'm pretty confident that we'll have a good showing this Sunday."
Park continued, "We were really wanted a decent finish at Daytona but we regrouped, compared notes and are ready for our next challenge. You can't let one race stand in your way of a successful season – we certainly aren't."
