QUOTES

Carl Edwards on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"We've had some really good races in the Nationwide Series at Charlotte. We just need to go and pick up some points with our Fastenal Ford Fusion, and right now is an important time for us to close points. If we can gain some ground now I'll feel a lot better at our chance on a championship. Drew and the guys have been working really hard. Since it is a day race everything will be different, but that might work to our advantage."

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"Charlotte is a huge race every year for us since it is in the team's backyard. Racing in the afternoon is different than what we have done the last few years in Charlotte so it will be fun to work at getting the chassis right for sunny/slick conditions. Horsepower, body, and strategy all rank high on the things needed to win at Charlotte."

The No. 60 Ford Fusion will carry the Fastenal colors again this weekend. Charlotte marks the sixth of 15 races that Fastenal will be the primary sponsor. The team will go into Saturday with chassis RK-685, the same car that the No. 60 team ran in Nashville earlier this season and finished sixth.
