Mike Skinner on driving at Atlanta Motor Speedway

"I love racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway. I've had success at the track in all three series, including a win in the Camping World Truck Series, a win in the Nationwide Series and some top-10 finishes in the [Sprint] Cup series. It's a fast track and I am looking forward to the truck that Gene [Nead] and the team have built for this weekend. I think we'll have a good showing at Atlanta for the International Truck/Monaco RVs Toyota Tundra."

Crew Chief Gene Nead on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway

"We are really looking forward to this weekend. Mike [Skinner] has had a lot of success on the mile-and-a-half tracks and we feel like we are bringing a package that will be competitive. We had a great run going in Daytona [International Speedway] but didn't have the finish to show for it. We are going to Atlanta [Motor Speedway] to finish what we started in Daytona [International Speedway].
