BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTES:

What are your thoughts on competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Phoenix International Raceway? "This weekend our team is going to Phoenix (International Raceway) to redeem ourselves. We didn't get the finish we were looking for at Texas (Motor Speedway) last weekend, so I'm hoping that we can capture a much better result. I've logged a lot of lap time at Phoenix so far this season between the NASCAR Sprint Cup race in the spring and participating in the Goodyear tire test a few weeks back, hopefully that will play in my favor when we get to the track this weekend."

Ty Dillon No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet

This Week's Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet at Phoenix International Raceway ... Ty Dillon will pilot Chassis No. 023 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Camping World Truck Series stable in Friday's Lucas Oil 150. Dillon drove this Chevrolet to a ninth-place finish at Kansas Speedway (April), third-place finish at Kentucky Speedway (June) and sixth-place finish at Pocono Raceway (August).

TY DILLON QUOTES:

You've never competed at Phoenix International Raceway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. What are your thoughts heading into this week's event? "I'm confident we'll have a solid finish at Phoenix (International Raceway). I've raced there in a NASCAR K&N Pro Series West car before and ran well. We'll have all the notes from the last two seasons when my brother ran there, so I feel good about this weekend. We're going to go out there and have fun."

Joey Coulter No. 22 American Eurocopter Chevrolet

This Week's American Eurocopter Chevrolet at Phoenix International Raceway ... Joey Coulter will pilot Chassis No. 018 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Camping World Truck Series stable in Friday's Lucas Oil 150. Coulter drove this RCR Chevrolet on three different occasions this season, including Dover International Speedway (June, 11th), Kentucky Speedway (June, seventh) and Atlanta Motor Speedway (August, seventh). Coulter also utilized this Chevrolet in five events in 2011, earning three top-10 finishes.

JOEY COULTER QUOTE:

There are two races left this season. What are your expectations going into the final two events? "Our ultimate goal is to win more races. We've had fast trucks the last few weeks, and I think we have a really good shot at winning another race before the season is over with. Overall, we've had a pretty successful season so far, and I want to ride that momentum through the last two races."
