Jeffrey Earnhardt Quotes:

ON CIRCUIT GILLES VILLENEUVE -- "I feel a lot better going into Montreal than I did going into Watkins Glen. We've got the experience of making our debut at The Glen behind us and I'm looking forward to another road course. I've heard it's a really nice track and that the fans there are incredible."
