DODGE NATIONWIDE SERIES QUOTES

"We're close, but nothing has been decided yet. Our attitude going into this weekend is that we are behind in points, which we are in the owner's standings. Regardless of how this season turns out, I'm proud of this team. To come out of the box like we have, with a brand-new team, is pretty remarkable. I told Mr. Penske when I made the move to Penske Racing that I wanted to run the full Nationwide Series schedule because I thought we could be very competitive. We were able to attract great sponsors in Discount Tire and Ruby Tuesday. We were able to bring in talented people, including my crew chief Paul Wolfe. To be in position to win the first NASCAR championship for Penske Racing is something that I take a tremendous amount of pride in. It's the culmination of a lot of hard work by a lot of people." Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger

"Texas is a fun place. It's a fast mile-and-a-half track that has a lot of bumps in Turns 1 and 2. It's got very different banking characteristics than Charlotte or Atlanta. It's a place where you race hard every lap. We've had some decent races there, but the fall race has always seemed to be a weak point for us." Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger
