Matt Kenseth on racing at Martinsville Speedway: "Our record has certainly been inconsistent at Martinsville. Back in the spring, we ran in the back most of the day and were fortunate to stay out of trouble and be there at the end to pull out an 11th-place finish. I think we may see a lot of cautions and it will be important to take care of your equipment and try to avoid trouble."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Martinsville Speedway: "We tested in Martinsville back in the spring but still didn't quite get the set-up right for the first race. We've addressed that issue and hopefully will be better this weekend. We took a hit at Charlotte over the weekend and are looking to rebound from that. Martinsville historically has not been a good track for us but we're staying positive and focused on coming out with a strong finish."
