Paul Menard on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:

"I am confident in our team and know Matt has put together a solid game plan for this weekend. We have had fast race cars all year and this weekend will be no different. I enjoy the challenge of tracks like Talladega, and believe if we can stay out of the big one, good things will happen for the Tide/Menards Ford Fusion."

Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:

"Talladega is a track where you have to be in the right place at the right time to stay out of trouble. Track position has played a major role the past few years in the Nationwide series and can mean staying in the lead pack or being pushed to the back. Paul has run well in this car before and I am confident we can get another solid run for the No. 98 Menard's team."
