DODGE NATIONWIDE QUOTES

"I am really excited about heading back to ORP. Last year was the first time I'd raced there, and while we didn't have a great finish, I feel like I learned a lot about racing there. As a driver, these are the kinds of tracks that I love to race. It reminds me of Saturday night showdown races. My dad has a tire shop just around the corner from the track, and as far back as I can remember, we'd go and watch the races there. Penske Racing has a lot of history at the Brickyard, and I'd like nothing more than to make some history for them at the little track as well." - Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger

"We've been strong on the short tracks this season. I think ORP is a great place for us to regain some of the momentum we have lost over the last couple of races. We had a pretty big lead in the points heading into Chicago and we've seen that dwindle a bit. When you have two weeks like we've had, it makes you thankful that you had a big lead. It would be different if we weren't competitive over the last few weeks, but that's not the case. Paul Wolfe and all the guys continue to give me fast Discount Tire Dodges. We're definitely not in a slump, but we need to get back on track." - Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger
