Ragan on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"It's really important to get a good finish this weekend to stay in the top 10. Overall we tend to run well at mile-and-a-half tracks and we got a good finish last year at Vegas. The track is really fast with the new surface which makes for a fast-paced race. I think about getting that first win all the time and I can't wait to get it, maybe this weekend we'll finally walk away with a much-deserved victory."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"Vegas is a good track for David. He ran well there last year and does really well at mile-and-a-half tracks. His confidence is increasing and his first win is right around the corner. Hopefully everything will fall into place and we'll leave Vegas with another solid finish."
