"We've got Blackwell Angus Beef back on the car this Saturday, so we're excited about that. Our team is looking to keep up the momentum from our solid run in Texas last weekend. Earlier this year, we had a ninth-place finish in Phoenix so I can't wait to hit the track. The car we are brining is a newer Roush Fenway Racing chassis. It's been solid in the three other races we've run it this year so we are expecting big things. We're also keeping the Raybestos Rookie of the Year standings in mind. We are in the lead but we need to keep working hard if we want to win it. We have just two more races to prove it."

Crew Chief Mike Kelley on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

"I am looking forward to Phoenix this weekend. Ricky was fast there earlier this year and we're brining one of our newer cars. It's a cool place but it's very different on each end of the racetrack. It has two distinct corners and has a dog-leg on the back stretch. It's a challenge because you never get the car good at both ends of the track. Usually you can give up turn three and four a little bit more than one and two. If you get to where you are good in one corner and you can just maintain it in another regardless of which one it is, that will work out for you but I think turn one might be slightly more important than three or four."
