DAVID GILLILAND, YATES RACING

FreeCreditReport.com Driver, David Gilliland on Indianapolis:

"I'm really looking forward to this weekend and getting back into the driver's seat after our weekend off. Indianapolis is one of those very special tracks that we have the chance to race on throughout the year and it is a track that holds a special meaning to me. The Brickyard is one of the tracks our organization looks at and always wants to perform well at because it has such a steeped history in racing. I've only had the opportunity to race there once, but I have been looking forward to returning for this weekend and it's just a great place to get back into our schedule after a week off. I think the closest track which is similar to Indy is Pocono and we had a great test there earlier this season so I'm looking forward to a good, solid run for our FreeCreditReport.com Ford this weekend."

FreeCreditReport.com Crew Chief, Cully Barraclough on Indianapolis:

"Our team is ready to get back into action this weekend at Indianapolis. We are bringing the same car we ran at Pocono back in June and I think we should be able to translate a lot of the set-ups from Pocono to our car for this weekend. Pocono is the most similar track to Indy that we race at so as we head into this weekend, we'll compare notes from Pocono and start off with a lot of the same set-ups. Of course Indianapolis is a unique track, but we feel that some of the characteristics are very similar. It would be great for our team to secure a solid performance this weekend so that we can carry that momentum with us for the remainder of the season."
