NASCAR WCUP: Kenny Irwin Qualifying Notes, Talladega

25 April 1999

KENNY IRWIN -28- Texaco Havoline Taurus -- YOU DIDN'T PICK UP AS MUCH AS OTHERS ON THE SECOND LAP, WHY? "I think we just try to get everything out of it for both laps. We try to gear it and put as much motor in it so we try the first lap as hard as we do the second and we never usually pick up as much as some do. We're hoping the first lap is good and the second lap can be maybe a tenth better." CAN YOU BACK UP YOUR DAYTONA EFFORT HERE? "We think so. We brought the same car. We didn't qualify real good at Daytona. Hopefully, we can make the top 25 here today because we know what the good race setup is. The guys on the Texaco crew will come through like they always do on Sunday."
