Heavenly father, we thank you tonight for all your blessings. You said in all things, give thanks. So we wanna thank you tonight for these mighty machines that you've brought before us.

Thank you for the Dodges and the Toyotas. Thank you for the Fords, and most of all, we thank you for Roush and Yates partnering to give us the power that we see before us tonight. Thank you for GM Performance technology and the RO7 engines. Thank you for Sunoco racing fuel and Goodyear racing tires that bring performance and power to the track.

Lord, I wanna thank you for my smokin' hot wife, tonight, Lisa, my two children, Eli and Emma, or as we like to call them, the Little Es. Lord, I pray you bless the drivers and use them tonight. May they put on a performance worthy of this great track. In Jesus' name, boogity-boogity-boogity.
