FORD RACING NOTES AND QUOTES MBNA Gold 200 September 25, 1999 Dover Downs International Speedway

KENNY IRWIN --11-- Rayovac Taurus (Finished 5th) -- "Not bad. We were tight all day with the car and we kept loosening it and loosening it and it just came to us. We felt pretty good about it. We didn't qualify good, so, overall, I'd say it was a pretty good day." YOU GAINED SOME SPOTS BY GETTING THROUGH ALL THE WRECKS, TOO. "Yeah. Twice the front cars, both of them took each other out I guess. I wasn't close enough to see it, but I'm saying in my mind, 'Well, that's two more spots and that's two more,' so the attrition helped us too." TO DODGE ALL THOSE WRECKS THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME DRIVING TALENT. "Even my spotter said, "I think every wreck has happened right in front of you.' I told him that was alright as long as I'm not in it. We did finish fifth and some of that was because of the attrition, but we're happy with it. Dale Jarrett and all the guys over there, they did a good job. They put a good car under me today." WHAT KIND OF CHANGES DID YOU MAKE TO THE CAR? "We did everything. We pulled rubbers out, changed wedge, track bar. Everytime we came in we made wholesale changes and we ended up getting it pretty good. If we started over again, I'd probably start right where we are so I don't feel too bad about it."
