Starting Line up for Indy IROC Race 4

Dale Earnhardt on Race 4 at Indianapolis:
"We have had a big time in the IROC series this year," said Dale Earnhardt. "It isn't easy to win a race with 11 other champions racing against you. I've won all three this year, but it wasn't easy. In all the IROC races I've watched and have raced, I don't remember any closer finishes than what we've had in all three races this year."

"We're going to Indianapolis for the final race and it is going to be tough to win. Most of the drivers have raced at the Brickyard and half of them have been to the famous winner's circle and know what a special feeling that is. It has been a tremendous time for me and I think Dale Jr. too. The finish at Michigan will be a memory that I will cherish for a lifetime. To race against one another for an International Race of Champions victory just doesn't happen everyday. Now we're racing together at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a landmark in motorsports history, that will be special."

"My attitude is, it is mine to lose. Mark has represented this series as its champion and I don't expect him to rollover and give it to me. He's a tough competitor, I think we've seen his determination in the past couple of weeks and the valiant effort he has given while injured. Mark has to win the race for any chance to clinch the championship and I have to finish something like eighth with no bonus points. If I can stay out of trouble and finish decent, I believe we'll have a good chance of winning the championship."
