Steve Kinser ...“I’ve had a terrible cold all week long. It seems like every time I fly back and forth from out West I catch something, but the race car has been running good all year long, from the moment we took it out of the box. We just hope we can get (500th career A-feature win) out of the way—it’s just a number. We just want to come into the race track feeling like we’re capable of winning every night, and that’s been the case for the last couple of years. It seems like you had to be a number eleven to run up front tonight—there were three of us up there. Kraig (Kinser) is getting better and better—he just needs some more laps, but he’s getting to see some of these tracks for the second or third time. Actually, I thought he was going to get by Paulie (McMahan) there down low, but he moved back up, and I was able to find something down low in 3&4 when they kind of got bottled up there, and we got on through.”
