KENNY WALLACE ON PIR:

"I really enjoy going out to Phoenix. The track is so different than anywhere else we run during the year. Trying to get off the corners there is the biggest thing that you have to do and carrying the speed through the straightaway. Trying to get your car to carry speed through the center and then be able to get in the gas hard off of it. It's just a fun race track to race on."

KENNY WALLACE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF FINISHING IN THE TOP-10:

"I'm very proud of my accomplishments in the NASCAR Busch series (NBS). Every time I have run a full season in the NBS I have finished in the top-10 in driver point standings. I'm in a strange place right now knowing I have just two races to secure that 10th position. We made some gains last weekend in Texas but a strong run in Phoenix would definitely put me a little more at ease heading into the final race of the season."
