Say What!

“I knew with Kerry (Madsen) starting there (outside row one), it was going to be tough, He’s a world class racecar driver…probably top five in the world. When you’re next to him, you know you better go all you can go. I didn’t really know where I should be on the track. I watched Clint (Garner) in his A and he was running the bottom pretty good. I wasn’t really comfortable down there…I like to run the fence, but you’re not going to win (Knoxville) Nationals that way. You’ve got to be able to move around and I need to do a better job of searching. When you have Kerry chasing you, you have to run as hard as you can.” Brian Brown winning 3 in a row at Knoxville Raceway

“I hate starting on the pole, I’d much rather start in the second row because you never know where the track is going to go. Luckily we got in traffic pretty quick there and I was able to move around and figure out where I needed to go. It seemed like I could go pretty much wherever I needed to.” Mark Smith in Dundee NY ESS victory lane

"The guys I have behind me make this happen. They put the time and the effort in last year to build it to what it is this year. I have a lot of little sponsors but they get us here...Dave Story Equipment, JC Tire, Gary Holland Trucking, the Pit Stop stores, Brubaker Auctions, KS Sales & Service, Finish Line Fuels. The first night this year we won on used tires and there were 48 cars here. Also, I can't thank Scott and Josh at Gressman Powersports enough for getting the engine back together so fast," Stuart Brubaker winning Attica OH FAST
