“Track position is important here, and our qualifying effort hurt us.  We did, however, do a good job making adjustments during the race. Pat came over the radio and just told me to ‘pick them off one at a time,’ and that was our strategy. We had solid pit stops all afternoon and did the best we could to bring home a decent finish and make up some ground in the point standings.”

Statesville, N.C.

“We had a good qualifying effort, which gave us a lot of hope heading into Sunday.  Unfortunately, we lost a motor early on and weren’t able to finish the race. I’m glad 8-Hour Alert and MHP were able to jump on-board and use the race to portray a positive message about supplements. I’m looking forward to Indy, where I’ve had some good runs in the past and sat on the pole last season.”
