Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Kansas Speedway: “I’m really looking forward to Kansas. We got to do the Goodyear tire test there earlier this year, which will hopefully benefit us. Last year, that was one of the good races we really had heading down the homestretch. We ran in the top five and we got a penalty and had to go to the back and drove our way back up to the front. We restarted third and on the last restart I got trapped on the bottom and finished sixth, but had a really fast race car and ran really well, so I’m looking forward to getting back there.”
Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Kansas Speedway: “We have had a lot of success on mile-and-a-half tracks this season. Kansas is track that suits Ricky’s driving style. I am confident that we will have a strong performance here but we also have to think championship picture and make sure we stay up front and out of trouble to gain the maximum points.”
