Stott Classic Racing, Toledo Speedway Pre-Race Quotes:
Billy Tanner, driver of the No. 07 CheapCaribbean.com Pontiac:

On Kentucky : ??Not a bad race for us in our debut together. We had the wrong transmission ratio which hurt us a little bit, but we were able to bounce back from it and collect a good finish. I hope Kentucky was the start of good things to come.?

On Stott Classic Racing: ??Everyone over at SCR is as professional as they come. I really enjoy working with everyone and Corrie is such an influence on my racing career. I'm learning a lot and I thank him for that. I only think the chemistry between us is going to get better and the results will prove that.?

On Toledo : ??I am looking forward to the challenges that Toledo Speedway will bring. Im never competed in a short track event in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, but I am sure it's going to be a blast. We're not running for championship so we're going to win and we're going to do everything we can to be in contention for the final fifty laps.?

On The ARCA RE/MAX Series: ??The ARCA RE/MAX Series is a great stomping ground for any driver. I'm enjoying competing in the series. I'm learning a lot about the cars which will help me as I try to make my transition into NASCAR in the next couple of years. We're running a limited schedule this year, but I really hope it turns into a full season in 2008.?
