I haven't talked with her since she became famous, so I don't know if she's changed, but she's a nice person and I think that won't change.

Richard and I have talked about running the Busch Series, but he wants to be 110 percent ready when we do unfold a Busch program.

Six years ago when I started this whole fiasco, there were not this many women in these positions to get the attention.

The girls are in a position now that when they do well, they are going to receive the attention. I think that everything that has been asked is all fair and good. I'm just extremely happy to have the opportunity to work with Richard Childress. He's first class.
