Matt Kenseth on racing at Pocono: "I'm glad to be going into Pocono with a solid finish under our belts. It has been a tough season for us so far, with some of our cars not running great, and other times just having rotten luck. Our focus is to consistently finish in the top-ten and work our way into the Chase. We're bringing my favorite car to Pocono to build on the momentum we created at Dover by finishing in the top-ten. It's really good on flat tracks so I'm looking forward to seeing what it will do this weekend. "

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Pocono: "Our goal at Dover was to finish in the top-ten and we were able to accomplish that. Now, we have to focus on doing the same thing week in and week out to work our way up into the top-ten in points. One thing I can say about our team, no matter what has happened this season, they've continued to work hard and remain positive and focused on the task at hand. They executed some awesome pit stops last weekend in Dover and repeatedly gained us positions off of pit road."
