JASON KELLER ON TALLADEGA

"We're coming off a positive run at Daytona but it's going to be a lot different race at Talladega. We ran a new car at Daytona and Todd learned some things that have helped us improve our whole Superspeedway package. We're bringing a similar car and we feel like we can go down there and be competitive, but you never know. You just have to put yourself in the mix late in the race and see what happens from there."

TODD GORDON ON TALLADEGA

"We came home with a ninth place finish at Daytona and were pretty good all day. The guys have worked real hard at the shop, and we feel like we have a little slicker and a lower drag car. We are bringing a better car to Talladega then we did to Daytona but in restrictor plate racing your partners control your destiny, so we'll just have to see how the cards unfold."
