Park on Change

Steve Park, driver of the Las Vegas-based Orleans Racing Dodge in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, said the firing this week of crew chief Johnny Allen had nothing to do with the team's results on the track. Park is 22nd in points and has only one top-20 finish through the first four races of the season.

"Johnny, I thought, did a good job for us but we had some issues, like preparations for tests and stuff like that, that probably weren't up to the caliber that the Orleans Racing team wanted it to be up to," Park said. "They decided a change was in order.

"It has nothing to do with the performance of the truck. The results haven't shown how well the truck has run all year. I don't want people to think that it is based on performance because people will think that getting caught up in someone else's wreck is no reason to let a crew chief go. It has nothing to do with that ... it is about how the team works together; it needs to be a well-oiled machine (and) right now it is not running like one."

Park qualified 25th for tonight's Infineon 200 at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
