Carl Edwards on racing at Phoenix:

"Phoenix is the first place I ever raced on pavement in a USAC Silver Crown car. It's a driver's race track. It's a track where the driver can make a big difference. Obviously, your car has to be set up really well, but once the car is perfect, that's a track where it truly comes down to the driver. It's such a unique track, it's got bumps and it's really unique. If you win that race, it's one you can really be proud of, so I'd love to win a Cup race out there."

Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Phoenix:

"We have had very fast race cars in the past at Phoenix but Carl has yet to win a Cup race there. Phoenix is a unique race track in shape and that makes it a challenge relative to car handling -- it is hard to setup the car so it handles just right at both ends. We're taking a car that has run well in the three races we've taken it to this year. It was new at Indy and our best finish with it was third at Michigan. Hopefully it can help us get a win this weekend."
