Carl Edwards on racing at Kentucky Speedway:
“Kentucky is a great track to race at, the energy level that the fans bring to the racetrack is awesome. My first NASCAR win came there in the Truck series. It’s a very special place for me. I have also won a Nationwide race there and when we go there in the Nationwide Series it is equivalent to Bristol with the amount of excitement and the passion that the fans have. This will be a big race and our goal is to put the Valvoline Ford Mustang in victory lane.”
Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Kentucky Speedway:
