"The Phoenix weekend is kind of your first test. What's the new rules package going to bring? What's the new qualifying format going to bring? Phoenix has the ingredients to be wild for qualifying because it's a fairly new racetrack and sometimes cycles on your tires do make you go faster. So, there will be some strategy and there will be some crew chiefs and engineers that will have some tricks up their sleeve.

"Phoenix is going to be a racetrack that just gets better with age. The groove widened out and it was a great race last year, and it will continue to get better and better.

"We'll have Farm Rich back on our 34 Ford for Phoenix. They've become a great partner after first joining us last year at Talladega where we won the race with them. We're going to be visiting Fry's Food Stores in Phoenix with them and we'll probably bring back a whole shopping cart of Farm Rich Snacks for the team."
