ERIN CROCKER QUOTES:

"We have been working really hard on the trucks since we struggled at California. Ray has put a lot of the Cup resources into the truck. I think with a combination of going to Atlanta, a track that suits my driving style a little better, and the truck having so much work done to it, I think we will be a lot better this weekend going to Atlanta."

CROCKER ON PREPARING FOR ATLANTA:

"I have never been to Atlanta, so I have been playing the NASCAR 2006 video game on Play Station 2. I have watched the truck race from last year to try and help me prepare for this Friday's race. I did attend last year's truck race at Atlanta and I think that will be some what of a help.

CROCKER ON GAINING EXPERIENCE AT DIFFERENT TRACKS:

"It's definitely a little set back going to a track that I've never been to. You can not beat experience, especially since I've never been to a track like Atlanta, which is probably the fastest on the schedule and a track like Martinsville that's probably the trickiest on the schedule. Experience is ridiculously valuable. It is definitely a handicap and with the new testing rules there is not much we can do. We will go there and do what we can, but we can't go in with really high expectations. We can only do what we can do. In the future when I go back to these tracks I will have a little experience and should be able to set some higher goals."
