I want to thank my crew, sponsors, and everybody with my race team. Hopefully we can get on a roll again.”
“The traffic is always an issue here, we ran up on some cars and I backed off the throttle a little. I didn’t know how close Don (O’Neal) was, but I had to be careful. I want to thank Bob and Barb Miller, they are here tonight and they have been long supporters of us. I want to also thank Hawkeye Trucking, Base Racing Fuel, Lucas Oil Products, Optima Batteries, Sweet Mfg, Ohlins, Weld Racing, and Lane Automotive.”
