Mike Skinner on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

"I'm really excited to get back to New Hampshire Motor Speedway; it's a great little track and we always have a lot of fun racing there. We have a really cool truck with both International Truck and EXIDE Batteries on our Toyota Tundra this week and each sponsor's colors are integrated in the paint scheme. I would love nothing more than to take that truck to victory lane on Saturday afternoon."

Crew Chief Stacy Johnson on competing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

"Even though we had a weekend away from the track, things haven't slowed down at Randy Moss Motorsports. Our team is working extremely hard getting our equipment better than ever for the last seven races of the 2010 season. Our trucks have been getting stronger each week, but now we need a little luck to go our way too. Skinner has had a lot of success at New Hampshire [Motor Speedway] in the past and we hope to continue that trend this weekend with the International Truck/EXIDE Batteries Toyota Tundra."
