Kenseth on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

“This weekend as we head to New Hampshire, I’m really happy that we’re a part of the Chase this year. Now our focus has to be to make sure that we go out and perform the best we can so that we’re able to close up some of the point difference between where we’re at versus the leaders.

New Hampshire is a track that has always been a challenge for me, and I feel like it hasn’t been one of my better tracks on the circuit, but we seem to be pretty consistent here statistically speaking. New Hampshire is a track where it’s fairly difficult to pass, so you’ll see teams use pit stops and pit strategy to advance their way through the field on Sunday.”

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

“This weekend’s race car is a brand new chassis so we’re eager to see how we unload off the truck at New Hampshire. Matt has had a lot of consistent runs at New Hampshire and our goal is to focus on making sure we give him the best equipment to give our Crown Royal team the best chances week in and week out for the Chase. Loudon is a difficult track to pass at and it really is a place that makes drivers and teams work for a good finish.”
