Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"I am looking forward to racing in Charlotte this weekend. We will be in the Mustang and we've had three great runs in the new car.

This will be my third race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, so I am familiar with the track. We got caught up in someone else's wreck back in May, so I can't wait to get back out there and redeem myself. We have an extra day of practice on Wednesday so Mike (Kelley) and the CitiFinancial guys should have the car ready to go for the race."

Crew Chief Mike Kelley on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"Charlotte Motor Speedway is rich in history and I always love racing there. The guys that work on these cars are so focused on putting a fast piece on the track because it is kind of like our home turf. Our company (Roush Fenway Racing) is typically fast when it comes to the mile and a half tracks so I'm looking forward to a great weekend. Ricky (Stenhouse Jr.) has some laps around Charlotte Motor Speedway, so we'll be ahead of the game as soon as practice starts. With the extra day of practice because of the new Mustang, we should be able to dial the No. 6 car in for Friday night."
