Quote Log - Lasoski.
On racing at the Gold Cup and moving on to Hollywood Hills.
"We raced hard out in Chico (Calif.), and we'll keep it up this Saturday at Hollywood Hills. That's what we set out to do every week, and this one's no different. Steve (Kinser) got another win, but at least we're keeping him honest. We'll go at it again this weekend."
Quote Log - Team Owner Tony Stewart.
On Lasoski's run at the Gold Cup and moving on to Hollywood Hills.
"Danny and the team are running well. It seems they're always in position to win, and if they can't get a win they're getting the best finish possible. That's what you've got to do when you're running for a championship."
