Ragan on racing at Kansas Speedway : “It will be interesting to go out to Kansas this time of year since we typically go in the fall when it’s a little cooler. We’ve got some good notes from Charlotte and Texas that we can use this weekend at Kansas to be competitive. I think we can continue our 1.5-mile success and have another strong run with our UPS Ford.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Kansas Speedway: “Kansas is a lot like Texas, so we’ll run similar stuff since Texas was a good track for us. Coming off a Showdown win and a second-place finish at a 1.5-mile track we feel like we have some momentum going into this weekend. We are looking to improve our points position with a good strong run at Kansas.”
