Quotable:
“It’s been a while since I’ve been to Virginia. Last time I was there I was the Top Fuel No. 1 qualifier but as every driver knows, that doesn’t pay the bills. We need to win this race. We have a great team and a car that is getting better every day, and with every event. We know we are going to be a winning team. Might as well get that started in Virginia.”
