COOK ON COMPETING AT NASHVILLE:
"In the last year or so I've been looking forward to going to the concrete tracks because we're taking a lot better race trucks than I've ever had. Anytime you go to a race track that you may not have performed well at in the past and you get some new equipment, you basically get a new chance to shine. I am really looking forward to going to Nashville because it's the next track on the circuit we'll be taking the race-winning truck from Kansas. This is the first time we'll be bringing it back since its win so we're looking for a good run there. I think we can definitely capitalize and ultimately get us a win with the Ford Power Stroke Diesel by International race team, which would be really cool. They give a really nice trophy there, a great guitar, a special one-of-a-kind deal and so I'm looking forward to hanging that in my house somewhere."
