#90 Quotes on Memphis

Driver, Lance Norick

On last year's crash which sent him to the hospital.

"I am just excited to get back there. I am not thinking of last year's crash at all...I mean you can crash just as hard at any track, I just happened to do it at Memphis. When you're out there, you don't even think of that. I like the track and am ready to go back, since I didn't get a chance to race last year."

Paul Balmer, Crew Chief:

"We call this truck "Toad. Its an inside joke. " It's a fairly new truck-Memphis is only its second race. We first raced it at St. Louis & we finished 13th. The team moved up from 15th to 12th in points after that race. We crashed at St. Louis, so its got a new side on it, but its more than ready for Memphis."

Spotter & Team Manager, Gus Primm:

"We've been making a lot of progress and have made a couple crew changes and I am really excited to go race at Memphis. Our driver's been driving well, our crew's been working hard and as a whole, I think our team is really improving. Plus, Memphis owes us one from last year." <pre> 2001 Performance Date Location Start Finish Points 2/14/01 Daytona 19 4 4th 3/04/01 Homestead 4 13 9th 3/17/01 Bakersfield 23 27 11th 4/07/01 Martinsville 21 27 15th 5/06/01 Gateway 13 14 12th 5/12/01 Darlington 18 20 14th 5/20/01 Pikes Peak 13 23 15th 6/02/01 Dover 16 17 14th 6/08/01 Texas 14 12 14th
