DODGE DRIVERS:

Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge

"Any time you think about race tracks with a lot of history, Darlington Raceway is always at the top of the list. It's an unbelievable track. You're wide open through Turns 1 and 2, and you almost have to throw the anchor out when you get to Turn 3 because you slow down so much. Alongside Bristol Motor Speedway, Darlington is my favorite track to race at. The two races that I really want to win, the two that would mean the most to me, are Darlington and Bristol. We've accomplished one of those wins. Now, we've got to go get the second one."

Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge

"These last two weeks have been pretty amazing. I knew when I made the move to Penske Racing last year that the potential was there for us to contend for wins and championships in the Nationwide Series, but I figured it would take a few more races for everyone to gel. What Paul Wolfe and all of the guys on the No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge team have been able to accomplish is spectacular. Our cars have been strong all year and now the wins that eluded us in the beginning are starting to come. Darlington is one of my favorite tracks and I would like nothing more than to make it three in a row this weekend."
