Jon Wood Quotes

On New Hampshire: "I've talked a lot to my father about New England because he has a lot of experience up there. He said it's like a giant Martinsville Speedway. The key will be getting into the corners and getting off the corners without using a lot of brakes. As odd as it sounds, one of the best ways to go fast there is to slow down and not over-drive the car."

On the season: "It's no secret Chicagoland was a huge disappointment for us, but we still have to look at all the positive things. We were running close to the Top 10 when we broke the throttle linkage. We came back and ran fast laps, but we lost five laps making repairs. What you have to concentrate on, however, is how we competed. We were fast and we certainly were capable of a Top-10 finish."

Crew Chief Jay Guy

On New Hampshire: "I'm glad we're going back to a flat track. We weren't as good at Milwaukee a couple weeks ago as we planned, but we figured some things out during that race and after the race that should help us make dramatic improvements to our flat-track program. One of the great things about this sport is a chance for redemption is only a week away -- the next race."
