DODGE QUOTES:
“This has been the trend all year: going to places I haven’t been to. I’m really excited to be in both the RAM truck and the Challenger Nationwide car this weekend. I love running double-duty. I think it just teaches you more about the race track. Running the truck race the night before definitely helps with the Nationwide car, so it’s kind of a win-win there. One thing I’ve struggled with a lot is being too loose at big race tracks. It’s just a learning thing. We were very good at Kansas; we definitely got it tightened up from practice where it was really good in the race.”
--Ryan Blaney

DODGE NUMBERS: TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
• Dodge has TWO NNS wins at TMS, both in the spring race: Kasey Kahne (2005) and Kurt Busch (2006).
• Dodge has ONE pole at TMS – Ryan Newman (2005 fall race).

FROM THE CREW CHIEF
“I feel like our Dodge Challengers are pretty good right now. I think there are about 10 teams that can win one of these Nationwide races on a given weekend. I feel like Ryan has the talent. I think he’s shown a lot of potential in the stuff that he’s driven to this point. It’s like I told him, every time you take that step it’s going to get a little more difficult.”
-- Jeremy Bullins, Crew Chief, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger
