FORMULA FORD 2000 RACE 1 NOTE
Andrea De Lorenzi(#50 Caffee Essse/Beta Motorcraft/Tatuus RC Ford) I think my car is very fast in the straight. I had some problems with blue flag, but no problems in the rain. I must thank my team. The last lap was more difficult because he was near me. I like this track. It is fast. Next year I want to race in Formula Atlantic. I hope to start the whole season. I like the NASCAR, but I don't know if I like for me.
DAVID RUTLEDGE (#78 Fleming Financial Corp/Van Diemen Ford) -- That was my best race so far. We qualified fourth. We got a good start and were in third and then we got another good start and went into second. I'm very happy to finish with the RCM Motorsports team. It was the best finish all year. I made all my passes on the starts.
MATT SIELSKY (#16 Team Kool Green/Seadoo/Van Diemen Ford) -- We fell back and then worked our way back up the car's great. We came here with just enough to run with, and then I had a problem yesterday. The team worked all night to get the car back together. My neck is sore and I have a little bit of a headache. I think in the cool weather, the engines gained horse power in the straight, we had a good temperature for the duration and at the end, the tires were still strong.
GREG LEMOND (#83 Manheim Auctions/ICG/Miller Milling Van Diemen Ford) -- It felt pretty good. I started back in 26th or something, and I passed four or five guys, but I had a gear that was popping out in the first turn and I lost two or three places. This is only the fourth road race that I've finished. I crashed yesterday, and the team really worked hard to get the car back together, and they got it together just as qualifying was starting, and we had a few things we had to adjust on it. Now that we've got a race under our belt, we can set the car up a little better, and hopefully I'll have a better run. I was cautious (when a light rain began to fall late in the race) because I had nobody behind me, and I didn't think I was going to catch the guy in front of me. I wanted to keep the car intact for qualifying, and I wanted to get through this race without any incidents, and this afternoon, go for it, and tomorrow, really go for it.
