Quotes from Glenn Allen, 1996 Raybestos Rookie of The Year:

"I always look forward to racing at The Rock. I look at The Rock as a big
short track and feel it's my kind of track to excel on. There will be plenty
of action and I am taking a car capable of being a big part of the action. The
crew has given me great cars here lately and I know this one will be one of
the best."

"I am looking at finishing the season with two top-ten finishes. This would
give us 4 top-tens for the last five races and a ton of momentum for 1998.
When I show up at the track now I know I am going to have a car capable of
running up front and that is a tremendous help for my confidence."


Glenn Allen was on his way to a career best finish last week before running
out of fuel. With 3 laps to go Allen was within sight of leader Todd Bodine
when the car sputtered in turn one. Allen shook the car around to pick up the 
final drops of fuel, came in for a splash of gas, and finished the race in 7th

Two busloads of York, PA residents, the home of Luxaire, are making the trip
to Rockingham for both races this weekend. Allen has met many of these race 
fans during his numerous visits to York over the past two years.
