Jon Fogarty on the weekend: “It’s great to be back toward the front end of the pack.  We qualified well yesterday, securing a second row starting spot for race one.  It was a tough race, (Ryan) Eversely in the Acura and I had a hell of a battle.  It was hot and physically challenging but I’m glad we held on to keep our spot in the end.  It would have been nice to get on the podium, but we put on a good show for the fans.  In today’s race I had a good start and then unfortunately Austin got into me again.  This weekend was a nice step l though.  We need to continue to start toward the front and I think we can have a successful finish to the season.  Thanks go everyone at GAINSCO this weekend, and I’m looking forward to the final swing on the West coast.  

Bob Stallings on the weekend: “It was a much better weekend for us overall.  Jon had a good race yesterday, I was confident we had another top-five in us this weekend, but unfortunately this guy Cindric (Austin) has a habit of hitting us.  He took us out of contention and took himself out of the race.  That was too bad.  We learn something every time we come to the track about this McLaren and we have tested at Salt Lake, so we are excited about getting there.”
