Carl Edwards on racing at Gateway International Raceway:

"I can't wait to race at Gateway International Raceway. It's a very unique and fun track. There is no other track like it. It has a long straightaway and turn 4 is a blast. I consider it my home track and I will have a lot of friends and family there. I want to give them a great show. We've had two big wins there and no wins have been bigger. Those wins there are as big as any of my Cup wins. The Sprint Cup Series is off this weekend, but we will have Aflac on our car as the primary. It would mean a lot to me and the whole team to get them in victory lane. This is a big race and we are coming off a great points weekend. It's time to build off of that, have fun and win."

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Gateway International Raceway:

"The uniqueness of two completely different ends of the race track makes Gateway a fun place to race. Carl loves to race there since he is from Missouri, so it is a special place for us. Gateway has the speeds of a speedway and corners that you need to drive like a short track."

THE CAR...The No. 60 team will take chassis -- RK 375 to Gateway. This is the same car the No. 60 team ran earlier this season at Fontana and Nashville.
