DAVID COMMENTS ON THE NEW & OLD RACE TRACK SURFACE AT LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"There are still a lot of the characteristics of the "Humpy Bumps" still there today. One thing about growing and watching racing on TV you always heard about the "Humpy Bumps", I didn't realize how big the "Humpy Bumps" were until I came here and raced. Before you had to arc it in, you'd drive into turn 3 as deep as you could possibly drive it and then you have to get the truck to cut down with you left side tires underneath where the "Humpy Bumps" where. It was a lot of fun. They are still there -- it's just a mark in the concrete where they were."

"It's just great racing at Lowe's Motor Speedway whether you are in a Busch, Cup or NASCAR Craftsman Truck. How they ground the track when they resurfaced it and how much grip it has now it's going to make one heck of a race no matter what series."

"You still have to arc it in and there's grip down low. Before you would hit the "Humpy Bump" and you could lose control of your truck allowing someone to get by, but now you can go right over them and stay on the gas. I think what they've done with the track will make it better racing, and I never would have thought you could make the racing any better here at Charlotte, because it's already so darn good. It's going to be more competitive."

DAVID COMMENTS ON NASCAR DAY

"We won the pole here last year and had a great finish and know we'll have an awesome Silverado for the race. The race is Friday is May 20th - NASCAR Day and we hope to help celebrate the day bringing the No. 75 Spear's Manufacturing Chevrolet Silverado into victory lane."
