TRAVIS KVAPIL, YATES RACING

Travis Kvapil on Chicago:

"I really enjoy racing at Chicagoland Speedway. Even though I've only raced there twice, it's just been a place that I really like the racing action at. I've tested a truck there a few times so I feel that I've been able to get a better feel for the track that way. So far this year, our best runs seem to have come at a lot of high-banked mile-and-a-half tracks. I feel that our Vegas, Michigan, and Darlington cars all ran really well this year and because of that, I'm really looking forward to this weekend. I'm also looking forward to getting these past few weeks behind us and going after some top-10 finishes so that we can try to get ourselves back up in the point standings. I'm excited to once again have FreeCreditReport.com back on our No. 28 because they've been a wonderful partner to Yates Racing this season."

crew chief Todd Parrott:

"I think that Saturday night's race is going to be interesting to see how these new cars handle at Chicago and under the lights. Chicago is a fast track and I have a feeling that speeds may go up a little bit when the sun goes down for the race. The car that we're bringing with us is the same car we ran at Dover and finished 11th with as well as the same car we ran at Darlington where we ran up towards the front of the pack all race long and finished eighth. We seem to have done very well at the 1.5-mile tracks so far this season so I expect a great finish out of our No. 28 FreeCreditReport.com team this weekend."
