David Gilliland:

What do you enjoy about racing at Atlanta and what are you anticipating this weekend?

"Atlanta is one of my favorite tracks for more than one reason. First off, it's one of the fastest tracks that we go to. Secondly, there are a lot of grooves and room to race. You can run up high, down low, or in the middle. As a race car driver, that's the kind of track that you want to go to; a place that you have options and where you have the ability to move around and find your best line. Atlanta is a place that I always look forward to going to. I think that we are going to have a great performance this weekend. We've spent a lot of time testing this season already and I feel that the results are paying off in the fact that our Yates Racing Fords are racing well. I really enjoy racing at Atlanta and I know our team is looking forward to this weekend."

Quoting FreeCreditReport.com Crew Chief, Cully Barraclough:

How are you feeling heading to Atlanta this weekend?

"All of our cars this year are fairly typical to one another, with the new chassis style this year you can basically take any car to any speedway on the circuit and in theory run well. Of course there are aspects that you tweak and adjust depending on where you are racing. Our goal this weekend is to make sure that David has the car performing exactly as he wants it to so that we can get a good qualifying position to start Sunday's race from. I really feel that our cars have been handling very well on the track and now it's time to showcase our abilities. David enjoys racing at Atlanta because it's a track that's fast, yet it also gives drivers enough room to find the lines they like running in."
