Ragan on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

"Loudon is always a special place for us to visit because of our relationship with Fenway Sports Group. There are a ton of Red Sox fans that come out to the races when we are there and cheer us on; it's great to have that kind of support. We took part in a Goodyear tire test earlier this year at New Hampshire so we should be fast when we unload. I enjoy racing at New Hampshire and have had some bad luck during the races, but the bad luck streak has to end sometime and I'm ready to be back running up front."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

"We spent some time in New Hampshire earlier this season for a tire test. The test went well and I think we learned some things that will benefit us this weekend. We're taking a R&D car as our primary car, but it's not the car from the tire test. All in all this should be a good weekend for us."
