QUOTES Carl Edwards on racing at Pocono Raceway:

"I'm excited to go to Pocono. I feel like over the past several weeks our team has made some great improvements and I'm really proud of my Office Depot team. We certainly have what it takes to run well there, even though we struggled some at Pocono on our last visit."

"This weekend will be especially exciting since I'll be traveling between the Busch and Cup Series races. I'm looking forward to racing Montreal and hopefully I'll be able to a win races in two different countries in the same weekend."

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at Pocono Raceway:

"The Office Depot team has been pretty consistent so far this year. We've had some really good finishes and our team continues to improve. I am looking forward to continuing to improve and hopefully winning more races. And, Pocono is a place where I feel like we can accomplish that. It's a challenging race track, but I enjoy racing there. With three different turns, there is a fine line between being good and being good enough to win. I know Carl has what it takes to be successful there. Hopefully we'll give him the car to go and do it."
