Robert Pressley Quotes

On Indianapolis: "Saturday night's race comes at a great time for this race team. I love short tracks and Indianapolis Raceway Park is one of the great ones on our schedule. You have to miss all the wrecks, make sure you're part of the fuel mileage game and find a way to create track position. The car has to be good; the race team has to be perfect; the driver has to be on his game just to survive 200 laps of racing. I believe our car, team and driver are up for the challenge."

On the season: "This race team is coming into its own. We've cut nearly 60 points of our deficit to get into the top 10 in the last two races. We're really starting to find our groove. Our goal all along has been to win races and finish in the top 10. I believe we've put ourselves in position to accomplish both."

Crew Chief Dan Deeringhoff Quote

On Indianapolis: "Short-track racing always concerns a crew chief because you know there's a good chance we'll have to do some work on the car after the race. In our case, however, you can't ask for a better driver than Robert Pressley. He grew up on short tracks and has an amazing knack for getting the car up front and keeping it in one piece."
