LENOX Industrial Tools 300 - Dodge Saturday Quotes

Ryan Newman (No. 12 Alltel Dodge Avenger)

ON OUTLOOK FOR RACE Im pretty sure we have a top five race car right now. Its just a matter of having track position. You have to have that top five car in the top 10 to be able to get a top seven out of it. We just want to be in the right position at the end of the race. Weve got a good Alltel Dodge. Were going to need good pit stops and just keep the nose clean.

ON KEYS TO SUCCESSES AT NEW HAMPSHIRE Track position is the most important part. Pit stops are part of that. It takes a little bit of everything to win at this level. Its just a matter of getting them all right in one afternoon.

COMMENT ON MOMENTUM AT PENSKE Hard work. Were the highest Dodge in points right now. Were 13th. And thats nothing to scoff at. Were happy with that but well keep working hard.

ON SUSPENSION HANDED OUT THIS WEEK BY NASCAR ON 24 AND 48 CARS Dont know, dont care. We dont do that kind of stuff, so we dont have to worry about.

ON UPCOMING TESTING SCHEDULE Were going to be focusing on everything. Road courses, short tracks, intermediates and getting things ready for next season. Were always busy getting prepared.

Juan Montoya (No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge Avenger)

Kind of. Its pretty quick but we kind of lost our way a little bit in the practice. One run was good the next one was bad. Its hard to know. Weve been good all weekend so itd be great to get another top-10 out of this, even a top-five.

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT GOING TO BE TO PASS HERE? I have no idea. I can give you an idea after this afternoon after I run the Busch race. Weve got good cars so it should be a pretty good weekend.

Donnie Wingo (Crew Chief, No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge Avenger)

WHAT HAS THIS PAST WEEK BEEN LIKE FOR THE TEAM? Its been really good. People have been a little down and out lately and just seeing them smiling, joking and having a good time it makes me feel good just being a part of it. Its like a load has been lifted off but still weve got a long way to go and weve got to continue to keep trying to move forward. Just to be a part of it with these guys here that Ive been with now for five years weve been so close so many times so many second-places and something happened right at the end. Its big. It just makes me feel good especially for those guys.

A COUPLE OF CREW CHIEFS WERE SUSPENDED AFTER THE SONOMA RACE. HOW BIG OF A FACTOR IS THAT? Itll make a difference a little bit but the depth of those organizations is so deep. The way these cars are now when you are at the racetrack it mostly fine-tuning. Most all of the work is done before you ever leave the shop.
