Jamie McMurray on racing at Darlington: "Racing at Darlington is always fun and intense. You always run close to the wall and hope you don't take that extra inch and run too close to it. I've had some good finishes there so I always look forward to going back. The track is abrasive and fast -- you'll need good pit stops, speed and a good-handling race car to prevail at Darlington."

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at Darlington: "The No. 26 team tested this car in Las Vegas earlier this year and had good results. It traveled to Fontana as a back-up car but hasn't seen any racing action yet this year. I think it will be a good one for us. We had a tough weekend in Richmond and didn't finish where we wanted, or even where we probably could have, had we not gotten caught on pit road when that caution came out. Jamie has a pretty good record at Darlington so hopefully we can leave with a top-ten finish."
