ERIN CROCKER QUOTES:

CROCKER ON KANSAS:

"We have run fairly well at the mile and half tracks. The guys have really seemed to figure out the trucks on these tracks. We struggled in Michigan and don't really know why. We were really quick in practice, qualified pretty decent and we were just a little too free in the race than we needed to be. I think Charlotte and Texas we were really strong so I am excited when run the mile and a half tracks and can't wait to get to Kansas."

DONAHUE ON KANSAS:

"We have been bringing the right package going to these mile and half tracks. We have just made a few bad decisions. We are taking the exact same truck we have taken to Charlotte, Texas, and Michigan. We found out that big changes are not what we need. We found that little changes are making the biggest difference, so we are just trying learning what Erin likes and needs. What we thought we needed for Michigan was way off of where we really needed to be. We ended up changing it at the track. We were a lot closer to hitting on things and having the better qualifying efforts and solid finishes. I know with what we learned in Michigan will help us for this weekend in Kansas."

DONAHUE ON CROCKER'S IMPROVEMENT:

"Every week we improve on our communication with Erin. We know when the truck is off and she is struggling a little bit we need to make small changes and help her out as much as possible. Because when the truck is right she can tell you exactly what it is doing. So, it is so important for us to get it right for her to make her more comfortable. She is learning a lot every weekend and Scott and I are learning more of what she likes to see and the degree of changes she likes. We feel like we are all getting closer to hitting on all the right spots to being competitive and having good solid finishes every weekend."
