Sterling Marlin, driver, No. 40 Coors Light Dodge:

“ Rockingham is a track you can race two or three deep on. You’ll see one car working good on the bottom, one in the middle and one against the wall. I always look forward to going racing there. I think it’s a neat track.”

Tony Glover, team manager, Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates:

“ The one engine rule goes into effect this weekend but I don’t think you’ll see much difference. The difference might come at Atlanta. As long as you watch the miles you put on your engine during practice, you will be ok for the race.”
