Stacy Compton Quotes

On California: "I'm glad we're able to come right back to a track like California two weeks after we raced at Michigan because we had a good car at Michigan, despite our (28th-place) finish. We made some changes to the car during the race that gave us a real good idea of what to do at California. Both tracks are identical in shape, so we feel like we should be able to carry over the improvements we made at Michigan to California."

On the season: "It's difficult not to be frustrated, especially when you have good cars every week and you just can't catch a break. We had a top-five car at Bristol last week, but there was so much aggressive driving ahead of us, it was impossible to get around it. The only thing that's keeping this team out of Victory Lane is a little luck."

Crew Chief Chris Rice Quote

On California: "The best part about this sport is redemption is always just one race away. We're looking forward to getting back on track at California. We learned a lot at Michigan two weeks ago and we're really eager to put that to test at California. Although our results don't always show it, this team has really come on in the last two months. We're good enough to contend for Top-10 finishes, and when you do that, it's only a matter of time before you win."
