Kenseth on racing at Kansas Speedway:
"We'll be at Kansas this weekend with another shot at an intermediate track. So far this year, we've had the majority of our success on these-type tracks. Kansas is a lot like Chicago, and we were very competitive there earlier this year.

"Last weekend was a welcome change for us. We qualified well, led a bunch of laps and ended up with a good finish. Obviously I would have rather won than finished second, but as a whole our team performed a lot better than it has been. Hopefully we'll be able to build on that this weekend and leave Kansas with a win."

Crew chief Chip Bolin on racing at Kansas Speedway:
"RK-625 was brand new for the race at Indianapolis. It was destroyed after a small explosion tore the right-hand side of the body off. So for Kansas, we just rebuilt what was a new car for Indy -- now pretty much a new car for this weekend. So far this year we've had the majority of our success at intermediate tracks. I'm hoping that Kansas will be no exception. We've managed to hit on some decent setups for these tracks and Matt's really made the most of what we've given him. If we can continue that at Kansas, there's no reason we shouldn't be able to run up front and contend for a win."
