Edwards on racing at Infineon Raceway:

"Bob Osborne and the rest of the Office Depot team have been doing a lot to help improve our road course program. We recently tested Road Atlanta to get in some practice on a road course and I think it has helped. I don't come from that kind of racing background, but getting a few races under our belts has helped a lot."

"After our win last week at Michigan, our team is a lot more confident and we're looking to build on this momentum."

Crew Chief, Bob Osborne on racing at Infineon Raceway:

"Carl's only raced Sonoma twice, but has managed to pull off some pretty solid finishes there. We tested Road Atlanta a couple of weeks ago and were able to gather a lot of really good information, so hopefully we'll have a competitive car come Sunday."

"I am so proud of the hard work this Office Depot team has been doing over the past several weeks -- it's really paying off. Our win last week at Michigan was just what we needed to build momentum for the rest of the season."
