Say What!

“It feels so good to finally win this title,I can’t say enough about my team and everyone who made this run possible. Gio was a great competitor and made us work hard all season long.” Bud Kaeding winning the King of the West/NARC 2017 Championship

"We were bad fast all weekend, and we've been knocking at the door all year, so to close this season out with a win tonight, it's something we've been working very hard on, We fought a Radiator issue in our Hot Lap session. We had a really bad leak, and we thought we had it fixed but we started the Feature and all the sudden I was soaked. I had coolant all over me, but at that point in my mind, I knew how tough this year and been already and just decided to run it until it wouldn't run anymore and once we got going, we actually set a pretty good pace." Seth Bergman winning the final night of the ASCS Cocopah Sprint Nationals

"This is the top of the line right here,This is everything you could ever want. You run all year to get your team ready and prepped, wanting to tweak on your cars and try to get faster each and every week, then cap it all off with an 'Oval Nationals' win. That's what our goals are. It's remarkable what our team's been able to do. I'm speechless. I don't even know what to do." Kevin Thomas Jr winning the Oval Nationals at Perris Auto Speedway CA

"Two months ago, when we got knocked out of the race at Kokomo, I thought our season was over,This means everything. Derek (Claxton), Billy (Grace) and I fought hard all year long for this. With Margo and Kenny Baldwin, we almost did this back in 2011. They've done so much for my career. I can't be any happier doing it for them." Chris Windom winning the 2017 USAC National Sprint Car Championship

"I put it on the cushion getting into turn one on the restarts," Roa continued. "I think I had my left eye closed. If a slider was coming, I wasn't going to lift. I was going to drive around it. I didn't want to see it coming and screw up all my momentum. I tried not to look down the whole race. I just tried to keep my eye on my line and running the cushion around it. It was tough tonight, especially at the end, when it started taking rubber, I think. It started getting a little left rear tight on the cushion. A couple times off turn four, I jumped over it and I was just waiting for it coming down into one and it never happened." Brody Roa winning night 2 of the USAC Perris Oval Nationals

"I was not supposed to be here driving this. Tayler [Malsam] was supposed to be here, He's had some concussion protocol stuff, and he felt that he wasn't ready to drive. I was actually driving home from Charlotte when Kevin Rudeen called and said he was buying a plane ticket, Kevin wasn't racing Yuma, if you want to come you can drive the car so really, it all happened 48-hours before this three-race deal started." Joey Saldana winning night 2 of the ASCS Cocopah Sprint Nationals

"This win means a lot. We've had a lot of success over the year, but these past couple years we've been short. We had a few races we should have won, whether it was with ASCS or several other organizations, but tonight we had a great car here with Bryan Sundby. He knows what's going on and just makes it so easy. The car was a dream to drive tonight," Travis Rilat winning night 1 of the ASCS Cocopah Sprint Nationals

"We changed some stuff around in the shock package to get things a little more comfortable for me, On our own, with this setup and the rest of the racecar, we went back to four or five years ago and did kind of the same thing with the shock package. We've got something that works really well for us and it seems like we've been trying to hit that all year, but have struggled finding it. I'm trying to stay humble, but we go race-by-race and it can always change tomorrow." Chase Stockon winning night 1 of the USAC Perris Oval Nationals
