Ragan on racing at Auto Club Speedway:

“We’ve got our good-looking silver UPS Freight Ford back on the track this weekend in California. California is a big, wide track which makes for plenty of opportunities to pass if you’ve got a good handling race car. Roush has always been strong at California and we should definitely be able to carry on that tradition this weekend. We’re taking the same car we had a good finish with in Michigan and so we should be pretty fast.”

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Auto Club Speedway:

“California is a challenging track to get your car handling well, but it’s also a place the Roush cars have excelled at in the past. I’m looking forward to getting to the track with our UPS Freight Ford this weekend. Last weekend we had a good run in Kansas and I feel we can carry that momentum over to California.”
