It took Mama a second or two to figure out what he said, ... Once she did, she was pretty mad. But Daddy got her calmed down, we finished dinner and headed to the track.
I think about him every day.
He was really the one that got me into racing. When I first started racing, he said, 'Boy, if you're going to drive these cars, you're going to learn to work on them. You have to build the trailer, build the cars and the motors and do it all.' For me it makes me appreciate it a lot more.
It seemed like when we ran second, they beat us. When the opportunity came along to join them, there was no second-guessing.
I can't understand the flag situation.
The car feels real good and we've got good motors. So far, so good.
It just shows how good the guys in the shop are putting stuff together.
I'll probably run two more years. If I can still win me some races, I might do it some more. You know, Harry Gant was still competitive at 54.
I guess you could say I like coming out of the gate strong. Hopefully, it will be the same with my new ride. I honestly believe we're going to go to the Daytona 500 and win it.
I thought I'd be little bit quicker.
I guess everybody saw it. It's a deal where I'd been racing cars a long time and I knew going around the track the fender was on the tire hard.
That's about the 1,000th and tenth time (I've been asked about my neck). It's OK. I'm been doing a little stuff. I got some stuff from UT, weights to build you back up.
We're having a good time. That's what I did last year. If you can't have a good time, you might as well stay home. I feel real good.
We felt like when we went into last year we had a pretty good chance to win the championship from the previous year with the fall we put together. We've got the same everything now, so I think we can come back and be as strong this year.
You look at 2001, we were third in points and no one gave us much of a chance when the season started. We came back last year and had the same team, the same everybody and led points.
