Yates Racing Driver, Travis Kvapil:

After a weekend of racing on a road-course, are you ready to return to a 1.0-mile track?

"I'm really looking forward to racing at Loudon this weekend. I'm excited to get back to racing at a track which is similar to short-track racing like Loudon is. I won a truck race at Loudon a few years ago so I feel that it's a track I've had reasonable success at over the years. I feel that our cars are going to be very strong at Loudon this weekend. At Phoenix and Martinsville we had cars with tremendous handling and since those tracks have very similar characteristics, I feel that we'll have a great basis to work off for this weekend. Our team, and Yates Racing as a whole, continues to get stronger every week and I know that my team is going to bring a fast race car just like we do every week. Our goal once again is that we're going to try and get another solid finish out of our "Drive One" Ford this weekend."

Yates Racing Crew Chief, Todd Parrott:

What tracks do you compare notes with in order to prepare for racing at Loudon?

"We are bringing the same car we ran at Martinsville earlier this season since we had a stellar run with this car back in March. We also ran well at Phoenix and Richmond which are tracks that we compare a lot to racing at Loudon. We'll be using the same tires as Phoenix and Richmond so I'm feeling pretty optimistic after a great weekend in Sonoma for Yates Racing. When we're looking at past notes, the ones we focus on leading into New Hampshire always tend to be our Phoenix notes. I feel very good about our chances heading into this weekend and our team is proud to represent Ford's "Drive One" campaign."
