Kyle Petty:

"Petty Enterprises is truly fortunate in that we have three great primary sponsors on my No. 45 Dodge. So this weekend we are going to show our appreciation by sporting a tri-primary paint scheme. Marathon American Spirit Motor Oil, Wells Fargo and the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) will all get primary treatment. I'm excited about it. Not many drivers get to represent three outstanding primary sponsors in one weekend."

"I'm looking forward to going to Talladega this weekend. I really believe that we can go down there and have a good solid race. That's what we need to get back on track. In the past we have qualified well down there. That's where our weekend begins, with qualifying. We're not going to get all of our points back in one race. If we concentrate on getting in the show, then the point's thing will shake itself out."

"Stewart Cooper has jumped right into the No. 45 team and taken charge. He's an impressive young crew chief. He's brought in some fresh ideas and thoughts to the talented team that Bill Wilburn put together. At Phoenix, we continually got faster during practice. That was just his fifth day as crew chief. We've still got some communication bugs to work out, some differences in language. But I'm happy with how Stewart has come in and meshed with everyone."
