FRED RAHMER VICTORY LANE QUOTES
"I just went away for a year and just didn't do my job," said Rahmer after picking up first Lincoln win since October 5th 2002. "Hopefully I can get my head out of my butt (this year) and win some races." "I want to thank all my fans for sticking with me last year. It had to be hard to be a Fred Rahmer fan. But I do appreciate it and hopefully I'll give them something to cheer about (this year)."
"Today's no indication of this year...obviously it's a really weird deal," said Rahmer referring to the windy, wet, and chilly opening day weather. "The amount of fans that came out (today) is absolutely unbelievable." " It was a heck of an effort on the Leiby's part, and obviously Fred Putney,
"I'm just glad to get it out of the way and now hopefully go after Mr. Smith's record," Rahmer quickly added. "I'm not going away yet. "
"I don't have to win...but I have to run what I consider competitively, and last year was just a joke," Rahmer added. "At the end of last year at the Lincoln banquet I got the hard luck award...it's not hard luck when you don't win." "That means you have good luck when you win. I just didn't do my job (last year) and I've been motivated ever since then."
"Joe (Harz), Miller Brothers, Material Handling Systems, Jeff Dur and Nate, they give us the best stuff there is," Rahmer pointed out.(Greg) Hodnett doesn't have anything better than me, they are just doing a better job...so we have to just step up to the plate and get it done."
