BRAD COLEMAN, No. 18 Sandvik, Joe Gibbs Racing

Do you enjoy racing at Kentucky? "I love Kentucky. I've been there three times and the worst I finished was 15th and all the others were seconds and firsts. I really like that place and that's where I got my first big stock car win in the ARCA Series. The last time I was with the 18 guys, I finished second there and should have won the race. We're going to go back there and we're going to win that one."

JOEY LOGANO, No. 20 GameStop Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing What is it like to travel between the NSCS race at Michigan and the NNS race at Kentucky? "It's busy. Last year was the first time I ever traveled back and forth between two different race tracks on the same weekend. It's pretty tough to be honest. I haven't done it since then either. There will be a plane ride down and we will get to practice and then a plane ride back to Michigan that night. I will go back and forth two times I believe"

How has your season to date been? "Our season to date has been a roller coaster. They need to put us in Disney's theme park there so we can be the best ride of the place because we've been so up and down. One week we'll have a great run and something will happen at the very end. Every race has been a roller coaster. We'll be so fast or qualify so good and then something happens to take us out of it. We're looking to turn that around and finish these races, even if it's 10th, it's still a finish because we get in situation at the end of races where we're places where we shouldn't be and things happen. It's been a decent season for what's happened on the track."
