Carl Edwards on racing at ORP:

"After winning in four different series at ORP, this track is really special to me. I've won in a Baby Grand car, a USAC Silver Crown car, a Camping World truck series entry and a Nationwide Series car. I've spent some of my best nights of racing at ORP. The first time I walked in there and ever saw the place, I walked in the gate near turn one and I saw the Silver Crown cars running so fast. The first thought that came to mind was...oh man that looks crazy. To be coming back there Saturday night as the defending race winner means a lot to me. Hopefully we can have a good run at what I think is one of the greatest race tracks in the country."

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at ORP:

"ORP is the same type of track that every Saturday night racer cuts their teeth on. It has a couple different lines and is pretty worn out. Getting your car to roll through the middle and then have good forward drive are the two main areas to focus on to run up front at ORP."

-THE CHASSIS...The No. 60 team will unload chassis # RK-686, the same car that Edwards drove earlier this season in Richmond, finishing fifth.
