Ragan on racing at Talladega Superspeedway: “Going to Talladega we all think the racing will be similar to Daytona, so that will be a second opportunity to take what we learned from the two-car packs.  Talladega is bigger and wider than Daytona, but there will be a lot of the same type strategy that we saw at the 500.  I’m excited about our Fords since they were all fast in Daytona, which is a good sign going into Talladega.”  

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Talladega Superspeedway: “We are heading to Talladega with the same car we almost won Daytona with, so we know we have a good UPS Ford going into this weekend.  David is a really good restrictor plate driver and we are looking forward to get to the track and continue the momentum we have built the last few weeks.”
