Quotes:

Lance Norick:

"It's always exciting to race at a new track. Plus, the fans in Nashville are awesome. They pack the stands and create a lot of excitement, which makes it more fun to race. It's also a good feeling knowing that John Monsam [crew chief] ran here earlier this year in another series, so he already understands the unique qualiities of this new track."

John Monsam, Crew Chief:

I'll be applying what I learned at Nashville earlier this year in the Arca race, and hope for a strong finish for the Aventis Behring Choice team."

Gus Primm, Team Manager/Spotter:

"We're really excited about Nashville. This truck ran last at Dover. It was really good during the Dover race and we have just been waiting to get it back out again." <pre> 2001 Performance:
