Matt Kenseth on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway: "Atlanta is definitely one of the tracks I particularly look forward to coming to. It is wide and fast and there are multiple grooves that you can run. We had a great car here in the spring but got caught up in an early wreck that ruined our day. I think we'll be competitive this weekend and we'll be looking to regain some points that we've lost over the past couple of weeks."

Robbie Reiser on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway: "I think that our finishes at Atlanta don't reflect how good we've been able to run there. We had a really strong car in the fall race last year when a mechanical failure ended our day early, and back in the spring of this year we were caught up in an early crash. In both races, though, the car was fast. This weekend we'll be looking to bring home a finish that hopefully reflects how strong we'll be able to run."
