Say What!

“The lapped cars were tough tonight and one spun in front of me and took the front nose wing off, I thought we were screwed after that, but we restarted up front where the clean air was the key with just a couple of laps to go, and we got it done. It’s great to win here at Carolina Speedway, and it’s my second career win here.” Morgan Turpen winning Gastonia NC USCS

"I love this place,It's an awesome track. We had a great starting spot, but that doesn't guarantee anyone a win." Craig Dollansky winning NSL at Jackson MN

“It’s every kid’s dream to drive a race car for Tony Stewart. I’m just glad we were able to get it done tonight, These guys gave me an awesome car tonight. It got a little tricky there in traffic because you really have to let up your momentum to figure out how to work around the drivers in front of you. I almost gave it away there at one point, but we were able to get by that and park ourselves in victory lane.” Christopher Bell driving the Tony Stewart Racing #14 winning night 1 of the All Stars at Kokomo Speedway.
