QUOTE WORTHY

Pastrana on racing at Kentucky Speedway:

“I’ve had mixed results on the 1.5-mile tracks so far this year.  Kentucky seems like a fun track and I’m hoping it suits me as well as Las Vegas and Atlanta.  Matt Crafton really likes it and he’s been helping me out a lot since my first laps in NASCAR, so hopefully some of his good luck here rubs off.”
