“In racing you've got to be pretty, and some of these guys you can't dress 'em up, Sponcers want someone "that can juke and jive. He has to go to into the boardroom and talk to the people.

They told me that when they drop the green flag, my driver better be running dead last by the time we got to turn three on the first lap. I appreciate you guys coming to see what we've got going on this year and I'm looking forward to it. I think the Car of Tomorrow is a bunch of crap, but that's just my opinion. We've come a long way in my 20 years of racing. A lot of people didn't think me and Chip working together would last for three weeks, but we've proven them wrong.”
