Todd Kluever on Daytona:
"I'm really looking forward to racing at Daytona. We didn't have the test we wanted there in January, but since then we got a different car with a new body on it which should be better. We'll probably spend what little practice time we have working on our qualifying set-up since we have to make this race on time because we are a new team with no points. That adds some pressure, but I think we'll be fine.
"I had a great time in the truck race at Daytona last year, although I still have yet to finish a race there. Neither the ARCA nor the truck races turned out very well for me, although I had competitive vehicles in both races. This year I not only want to finish the race, but finish well enough to not have to dig ourselves out of a hole in the points early in the season. It doesn't seem like it should be that hard to do, but at Daytona you just never know what might happen."
