QUOTES

Carl Edwards on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:

“It is going to be fun. We will have so much pressure on the Cup side that is will be fun to go there and just run hard for the Nationwide win and blow a little steam off on Saturday. It will be fun to race during the day too. It should be a fun, slick race track and I like that. I am really looking forward to it.”

Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:

“We finished second their earlier this year so hopefully we can improve that position by one spot. We have been running really strong the past couple of weeks and our Fastenal team is performing well on pit road. We will keep making the needed adjustments during the race and hopefully get this Fastenal Ford back to victory lane and claim Carl’s first win at Chicago .”
