Robert Pressley Quotes

On Bristol: "A track like Bristol brings out the best -- and worst -- in people. It takes perfect execution from a driver and a car and a crew to finish with all four fenders intact. When something goes wrong, it's easy to be frustrated and angry. By the time Saturday's race is over, some will be celebrating at one end of the speedway; others will be arguing at the other end."

On the season: "While switching from Chevrolet to Ford and starting a second team from scratch would be a difficult way for most teams to start a season, we're not using those facts as excuses. The truth is we still expect to run up front and win races. We've made huge gains from the first race, but until we win we're not going to be satisfied."

Crew Chief Steve Plattenberger Quote

On Bristol: "This is one of the racing weekends that we enjoy most. I was with the team in 1996 when we won the pole and the race with Jeff Fuller. Once you win, anything less is disappointing. Our understanding of the new Fords has come a long way, and I think we're in position to give Robert everything he needs to run up front."
