JUSTIN LOFTON ON CHICAGOLAND

"I am really excited to get back in Baker Curb Racing's No. 27 this weekend. Despite it being my first time with the team and first time on the track at New Hampshire we had a solid weekend. The Weekend Warriors TV.com Ford Fusion was one of the fastest cars in both practices, qualified well and we ran half of the race in the top 10. Chicagoland is a track where I have had great runs in the ARCA cars and I really enjoy racing there. Baker Curb has had a lot of success on the mile and a half tracks this year with Greg Biffle and I'm confident that we'll have another strong run this weekend!"

CREW CHIEF JOHN REESE ON NEW HAMPSHIRE

"Chicagoland is a fast mile and a half track that is similar to Texas, but just a little bumpier. The tire for this weekend is the same one that we ran at Texas so our set-up for this weekend will be very similar. Justin ran the Nationwide race at Texas, so he'll have a good feel for this tire. This weekend will be the third race for our newest chassis, car 86. Greg Biffle was running in the top 5 in it at Charlotte before being put in the wall on the last lap and Scott Wimmer led some laps and had a top-10 finish in it at Kentucky. Justin did a great job in our car a few weekends ago at New Hampshire; especially for being his first time at that track. With him having a win at Chicagoland in the ARCA Series and being the second race with our team, I think we'll be one of the cars to watch out for this weekend!"
