QUOTES Kevin Lepage: "Last year when we where here, we didn't qualify that well, but we gained 18 positions by the time the race was over, finishing 18th. This year our goal is to qualify closer to the front and finish higher."

"Ryder Driver Recruiting, one of our associate sponsors, held the NASCAR BGN Transport Drivers Championship yesterday. I had a blast talking with all the hauler drivers as they competed against each other. They really enjoyed the event. Every one of them told me how much they appreciated Ryder and the chance to compete against each other. Ryder really pushes safety on the road and this was an opportunity to raise safety awareness and have some fun at the same time."

"Panhandle Slim, our newest associate sponsor, has a lot of ties here in the Nashville area. Panhandle Slim, manufacturers of quality western wear, produces shirts for various country music artists, including Brooks and Dunn. This is an additional opportunity for Panhandle Slim to reach both country music fans and NASCAR fans."
