Minnesota Flood Hits Close to Home with Sponsor Fastenal: The Fastenal Company, who serves as the primary sponsor on the No. 18 Dodge Ram, has recently been affected by the horrendous floods in Southeastern Minnesota. The city of Winona, which is the home place for the Fastenal Headquarters, was one of the towns worst hit by the horrific flooding. Many Fastenal employees lost their homes and personal belongings in the recent floods. If you would like to help them with the recovery effort contact The Winona County Chapter of the American Red Cross at (507) 452- 4258 for more information.

Heading Home to St. Louis and Racing with Herman: "I am looking forward to this weekend's race for many reasons. First of all, I get to go home to St. Louis and race in front of my hometown crowd. It always seems no matter what happens on the track you will have a hometown fan out there pulling for you in the stands. Another great thing for me in St. Louis this weekend is racing with my good friend Kenny â^a^ÜHermanâ^a^y Wallace. Kenny and I have been traveling the country this year racing our dirt cars together and now we'll have some fun in trucks. It will be a great rivalry in front of our home crowd."
