Quote Log - Lasoski.

On this weekend's race at Eagle Raceway:

"This week's schedule kind of eased up on us a little bit. We only had one race last week, which gave us a bunch of time this week to get ready to head up to Nebraska. We'll take it. Steve (Kinser) is still ahead of us in points and we're keeping him in sight, but we want to be past him when this season ends. In the meantime, we'll take each race one at a time. We want to win every time out, and with the points as tight as they are, that's really the only strategy there is."

Quote Log - Team Owner Tony Stewart.

On this weekend's race at Eagle Raceway:

"Danny and the team have the right mindset. They've had it all year, really. Focus on winning races and the points take care of themselves. Their trip to Eagle gives them another shot to do just that."
