SCOTT LAGASSE JR. ON LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"I'm really excited about going to Las Vegas. I ran really well there last year, despite it being my first time at the track. I think personally I learned some things at Fontana last week that will help me this week and I also got to talk to Greg (Biffle) and I learned a lot from him. It is really a great situation to have a well-respected driver like Greg as a teammate. He definitely opened my eyes to some things that I think I can use to continue to improve as a driver as the season progresses."

JEFF WHITE ON LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is fairly similar to Auto Club Speedway. The biggest difference is that we'll be running a different tire. I expect the track to be a little slicker and a little faster than last year. To be successful you have to keep the blade out of the air and get the car going down the straightaways but at the same time be able to turn well in the corners. We are running car 80, which is the same car we ran last week at California. We'll make a few minor changes on the set-up to get a little closer to what Biffle was so successful with last week."
