Mike Skinner on racing at Phoenix International Raceway

"What's great about Phoenix [International Raceway] is that it is a great track for trucks--it's a place like Richmond, Darlington and Loudon--there are just so many cool things and characteristics that the track has that you won't find at any other track on our circuit. The big mile-and-a-half cookie-cutter tracks are good, but Phoenix [International Raceway] is just a big short track with its own personality."

Crew Chief Stacy Johnson on competing at Phoenix International Raceway

"Phoenix [International Raceway] is always an exciting place to race. It has just the right mix of short track and intermediate characteristics. You have to have every piece of the puzzle, brakes, downforce and handling to be successful there."
