Say What!

 "This is unbelievable, I can't thank Keith Kunz enough for this opportunity. It's really awesome. They built this car brand new this off-season. It really shows what good equipment does for you." Christopher Bell winning Pevely MO WoO

“There wasn’t’ much room anywhere, and we weren’t actually very good there at the end. I was worried, and tried looking at the scoreboard, but there was way too much stuff going on, I was trying to run defensive and be offensive the whole time. Running first here sort-of sucks. It’s always better running second except when you get in that kind of lapped traffic.” Brian Montieth winning at Lincoln Speedway

"For years with the Outlaws, I got my (butt) kicked pretty hard, but I want to turn it around and start kicking.Chad Kemenah winning Mercer PA All Stars

"I had to hold up my end of the bargain to get this team a pavement win after we got them to bring this car out two years ago. I'm thankful to be with this team and work with them to strive for the same goal. They are the true definition of a good "team." Today is my grandfather's birthday, and yesterday was my anniversary with my wife Jordan, who is the ultimate partner and a big part of this team, too. My dad has been a huge part of this effort, getting the pavement car going well, and to reward him and all my guys is special to me," Kody Swanson in Toledo OH USAC Silver Crown victory lane

"This was one of the tracks that I really, really wanted to win at this year, It's really, really good to win in front of my fans and all my friends and family. I've got Jenn and Nixon here with me. It's a good night." Shane Stewart winning Salina OK WoO

 “Greg (Dalman) and I had a really great race going there,I couldn’t quite get by him, and we got close a couple of times, but I finally got a good run through one and two and got by him.”  Ryan Ruhl winning his 2nd SOD main of the year at I96 Speedway MI Friday
