Ragan on racing at Martinsville Speedway:
"Martinsville is one of the hardest tracks on the Sprint Cup schedule, but also one of my favorites. It's a short track where all the fans have a good time and there's lots of racing action for them to watch and for us to maneuver through. For 500 laps you are in traffic and really need to take care of your car to be in the right position at the end. We'll shoot to qualify well to start with good track position and then we should have a fast UPS Ford that will take over from there. Short tracks are my favorite so I'm looking to get a good finish."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Martinsville Speedway:
"David enjoys short tracks and has had some good runs at Martinsville in the past. Martinsville is a place where a lot can happen quickly, so track position will be important. We'll try to get a good qualifying effort, stay out of trouble and be there at the end of the race to get a good finish."
