Ragan on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

"Phoenix is the final short track race of the year and something we are looking forward to. We have worked really hard on our short track programs this year so hopefully it will show. Phoenix is a fun track to race at, but a tough track to get the car to drive perfect. We'll try to improve from the spring race and get a good finish in our UPS Ford."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

"We've got a new setup for Phoenix this weekend based on our notes from the spring race. It's a promising new setup that we've been working hard on. Overall it should be a good weekend for us. As the season winds down we just want to get a good finish to head into the off season with."
