Quotes Tim Kaeding
"Getting pushed off we had some bad luck and got penalized one row because we were late, but I'd rather start in the second row anyway because I usually screw up when I start in the front row. I just have to thank Dennis and Theresa Roth, H.R. Cattle, Beef packers, and Freightliner, and all you fans for coming out and putting up with this heat. Let's go have some beers at the Chili Feed! It felt really good (to lap Steve Kinser)--a couple of years ago he and I had one of the best races I've ever run here. I just screwed up a little bit at the end and he got by me, but to lap him felt really good. I'd better watch out--he's pitted right next to us, and he might hear me and come out and beat me up. I was just cruising along in the 83JR car tonight. I feel bad for Paul (McMahan) that he's not out here this weekend. He was god when I was growing up, and it would be fun to be able to bang wheels with him tonight. We're going to go Outlaw racing with this car next year, and I hope everyone will tune in and listen and watch, and e-mail us and cheer us on. We'd love to get back here tomorrow night and REALLY have some fun!"
