Ragan on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

“After a strong run the next week always looks good and we had a good strong run in Texas. Phoenix is a difficult track being both ends are different, so we’ll have to focus hard on our setup. We will try to go out there and get a win with our UPS Ford.”

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

“Phoenix is such a unique track that it’s hard to get your car balanced at both ends. It’s a place where you can run high and low, so it makes for good passing and racing. We’ve got momentum on our side going into this weekend so we’re looking forward to getting back to the track.”
