Robert Pressley Quotes

On New Hampshire: "I've always liked New Hampshire. I've had a lot of good runs there because I approach it like a big short track. You have to hug that inside groove, and you have to be able to really 'throw' the car through the corners. I'm bringing my short track mentality, and we'll see what happens."

On the season: "Nobody said this sport was supposed to be easy. We came off our biggest high of the season (a fourth-place finish at Daytona Beach, Fla.) to one of our lowest lows (a blown engine and 35th-place finish at Chicagoland). We didn't get too excited about our top-five, and we didn't get too down about the problems at Chicagoland. All we can do is keep working on our cars so the highs become routine."

Crew Chief Dan Deeringhoff Quote

On New England: "What counts most at New Hampshire is having a driver like Robert who has a great track record there. We tested at Greenville-Pickens (S.C.) Speedway on our chassis, especially the middle of the corner. We found some things that should help. Robert treats New Hampshire like a big short track, so we went to a short track to find answers."
