"It was a well kept secret. But I tried to give you as many hints as I could. I was dodging questions. I kept saying 'It's time to do something different.'"Everyone asked why I wanted to leave. A warrior needs an ultimate challenge and to be able to come back to the sport with Dodge and become a team owner is a challenge, but it is the American dream. I am given a great opportunity to do that by being part of the Dodge Dealer Association."The racer in me is dying to get to work. Yesterday I had 492 days, now I have 491. I need to start. To get to work. We have a starting point. We have a goal-the Daytona 500 in 2001, and we are working on our road map to get there. I sincerely appreciate what the Dodge people have done in giving me this opportunity."
