“Any sprint car driver is going to want to race with the World of Outlaws and be an Outlaw. Maybe not all of them. But if you’ve got a dream and that’s what you want to do for living — race — then you’re going to want to go race with the Outlaws, because it’s where the competition is at. It’s where the money is at. You get to do the most races. That’s how we live, and that’s how we do it.”
