Menard on racing at Watkins Glen International in the Nationwide Series:

"After our last race at Chicago, I'm looking forward to being back with (Matt) Puccia and all the guys on the No. 98 Nationwide team. I messed up by speeding on pit road in Chicago when the guys gave me a really good car. This weekend is our chance to make that up. The guys have a great car and one that we have tested really well at VIR with a couple weeks ago. It will be great to get some extra laps around the track this weekend and have a good showing for the No. 98 Richmond / Menards team."

Crew Chief Matt Puccia on racing at Watkins Glen International in the Nationwide Series:

"We have a pretty heavy schedule with Paul over the next six weeks. We are running two road course races at Watkins Glen this weekend and then Montreal in a few weeks. This weekend will be a good shot for us to post another good finish. Paul has some great runs at Watkins Glen and hopefully we can keep that up this weekend and start off this next run of races on a good foot."
