Jon Wood Quotes

On Kansas: "There's no question I've been waiting for the race at Kansas all year. I really love the track; I really like the way the track rewards drivers who can push the car through the corners without pushing it too hard. I've always been able to find a good rhythm there and that's going to be important to find that again."

On the season: "We've learned a lot this year and the biggest lesson is just how difficult this sport can be. One week you're on top, the next you come crashing back to reality. What's important is to keep building, one block at a time. We've come a long way in our rookie season and we're definitely on the upswing."

Crew Chief Jay Guy Quote

On Kansas: "The off week gave us a chance to work on all of our cars, especially the one we're bringing to Kansas. It's no secret Kansas is Jon's best track. He has a good idea of what he wants for that track. But more important he has the confidence you need to really hang the car out there. It's a momentum track. The more momentum you carry through the corners, the more momentum you will carry down the straightaways."
