Matt Kenseth on racing at Kansas Speedway: "We are relieved to be finished with Talladega. Our car was really good and we were able to come home with a solid third-place finish. It was disappointing, though, to lose the lead on the last lap and not end up in Victory Lane. Our momentum is good right now going into Kansas -- our cars have been strong, the pit stops have been fast and this whole team is just focused every week on getting the best finish possible."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Kansas Speedway: "We have a new car that we're taking to Kansas. We tested there last week and are looking forward to seeing if what we learned during the test will pay off. Our record at Kansas hasn't been great and we're definitely looking to turn that around."

Busch Crew Chief Chad Norris on racing at Kansas Speedway: "We are certainly looking to rebound from our finish last weekend. Sometimes those things just happen and there is nothing you can do about it. We hated it, though, because we had such a good car. We're bringing car number 42 this weekend, which we haven't run this season. We're looking forward to seeing what it can do. Matt has a top-five Busch finish at Kansas and we'll be looking to match and hopefully beat that."
