Kenseth on racing at Kansas Speedway:

"Kansas is very similar to Chicagoland Speedway, but Kansas is just a little flatter in the banking than Chicago. Kansas is a good track, but it's gotten to be a difficult place to pass during the race. It is a wide and flat track, but with the new car design, our challenge is making sure we can work on the set-ups to combat the fact that we can get pretty tight due to the aerodynamics of these cars. We're just going to keep building upon what we've learned the past few weeks, and focus on making sure we make the right adjustments Sunday afternoon."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Kansas Speedway:

"We're bringing our car from Richmond and plan to run some of the set-ups that the No. 99 team ran at Chicago earlier this year since they had a great handling car. Our plan is to also use our settings from Dover since we felt we had a good car this past weekend as well and we'll build off of those set-ups. Kansas is a typical 1.5-mile track but it's a place that's tough to pass with this new car because you find the car being aero-tight, so qualifying will be a main focus of ours on Friday. We'll do a few runs in race trim and then switch over to work on qualifying."

Entering this weekend, Kenseth is currently eleventh in the NSCS driver point standings
