JASON KELLER ON CHICAGOLAND

"Chicagoland is one of those cookie cutter mile and a half tracks and it is a difficult track to get around sometimes. I'm excited about racing on Friday night under the lights in a really great market. We've struggled a bit as of late but I'm looking forward to getting back on the track and turning things around."

TODD GORDON ON CHICAGOLAND

"After we went a lap down in last year's race and got to follow the leader around we figured out how to drive around the bumps in turn one and had a very fast car the rest of the race. We've struggled some in our mile and a half program in the past so we've put a lot of time and effort into improving that area. We ran a lot better at Charlotte then we have in awhile and we are bringing the same car that we ran in that race, car 84, so we expect to see continued improvement this weekend."
