WHEN TONY MADE HIS ANNOUNCEMENT CHEVROLET WAS A BIG PART OF THAT, THEY ANNOUNCED THEY ARE GOING TO BE CUTTING BACK THEIR NATIONWIDE AND TRUCK SERIES PROGRAMS, DOES THAT WORRY YOU KNOWING YOUR TEAM GETS SUPPORT FROM THEM?
“I don’t know the entire financial situation on any of the big three. My first comment in respect to all of this back when Chrysler announced something, I don’t think it was bankruptcy but they announced something and the bottom line was we’re here to support all the manufacturers because Chevrolet doesn’t just win a race against Ford they win a race against Chrysler and Toyota and everybody else. The bottom line is we’re here to support all of them and whatever we can do as drivers, team owners, sponsors to help the economy, to help the situation, to help GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota is what we need to do. I don’t know financially their situation as far as what they’re going to pull from and how much they’re going to pull and how long this is going to last and all that stuff. That’s a question for the Chevrolet people but the bottom line is as media, as drivers, as everybody else we need to help out their situation.”
