Say What!

"They've been working really, really hard for me and it's greatly appreciated,I just had a good car. Steve made a few adjustments on that open red and I think it helped me. It's one thing to catch Donny, but it's another thing to pass him." Shane Stewart 2nd place at Kokomo IN WoO Tuesday

"Well, this is about as close to home for the guys in the shop as it's going to get,It's great. We've got everyone from the shop here. This is like a hometown win for this race team. It's always great to have that." Donny Schatz winning #21 Tuesday at Kokomo IN

"I'll tell you what, there isn't a better car out there than that one right there, The last few laps, it got a little edgy coming off of four. I kind of used my tires up because I was driving the dog **** out of that thing, but it was worth it though to get the win tonight." Sam Hafertepe Jr winning ASCS at Texas Motor Speedway.

“I watched a hell of a race. Those guys were dicing and it was awesome for me to sit there and watch them. I watched where they raced. The top got a little bit better down there (in three and four). I could see Bryan made a good lap around there on that restart and I started to run up there and I was just kind of trying to run where they weren’t. Down here (in one and two) it was survival. I was a little snug and got better and better as the race went on,” said Dale Blaney winning Fremont Speedway All Stars Friday

"I saw him crossed up, I was trying to check up, check up because I saw him come across the track. I saw him loose there - I kind of thought he was going to come up and get us." Sweet recovered but not before slipping back to fourth place. In the meantime, Kinser, Kerry Madsen and Joey Saldana all got around him. "I know Brad's probably feeling pretty bad, but I'll take it any way I can get it," Kraig Kinser said in Spencer IA WoO victory lane.

A good containment seat holds your spine in perfect alignment and that allows impact forces to be much more effective in crushing the bones in your back. The CRASH PAD reduces these impact forces by giving your spine somewhere to go and the RIGHT compression resistance to slow your downward motion. Don't risk a Broken Back.
