Say What!

“Unreal, We had a plan from the word go to be good at the end. The track kind of came around to us. Not bad for a North Dakota boy and a South Dakota boy (Schatz’s crew chief Steve Swenson). I think that was an ass whooping there.” Donny Schatz winning Grand Forks ND WoO

"I was being a wimp at the beginning running the middle and bottom and DJ (Foos) got underneath me and I started throwing hail Mary's into one and it was sticking and on that restart clean air helped out and the car was good. I have to thank Ken and Duane Mackey and Griff's Engines and the whole crew," Chris Andrews winning Attica OH AFCS
