Jamie McMurray on racing at Las Vegas: "I'm looking forward to heading out to Vegas. It's a fun place to be -- definitely one of my favorite cities. And after the test we had out there a while back I think we'll have a good car for the race. I was pleased with how the car ran in Fontana, and it was actually better on the track in Vegas, so we should be strong."

Crew Chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Las Vegas: "We were pleased with our finish at Fontana. With that finish we began to dig out of the hole we made for ourselves in Daytona. I think we can do even better in Las Vegas, though. Our test there was good. We'll just have to avoid trouble and any mistakes, and we should be alright."
