Stacy Compton Quotes

On Kentucky: "Obviously, I like Kentucky. I won my only Busch Series pole there last year and we were a top-five car all day long. We left there knowing how to make the car better, so we're eager to apply that knowledge this year. This team is getting on a role and I think Kentucky is the kind of place we can make a breakthrough."

On the season: "Our record is starting to show we've made big improvements. We've come a long way with our intermediate track program, especially the ones with high banking. Before you can win, you have to run in the Top 10, then the Top 5. We've made that first step and it's only getting better. We're finally starting to get the kind of results we deserve."

Crew Chief Jeff Chandler Quote

On Kentucky: "We've got a lot of good notes from last year and we've learned so much through our testing program this year. We're all kind of eager to see it all together at Kentucky. It's a great racetrack. You can pick up a lot of speed in the corners, especially if you can keep the car down in the bottom groove."
