Dan Wheldon on the SunTrust Indy Challenge

"Obviously, the track has changed at Richmond. It's a lot smoother now. Apparently it's going to have more grip than what it has been. The Klein Tools/Jim Beam team is just going to go with the same approach that we've had. We're going to try to do our best, and if we're able to win, that's what we're going to try and do. If not, we'll score the best possible points finish we can."

Tony Cotman, Team Manager, on the SunTrust Indy Challenge

"We're looking forward to going to Richmond. It will be interesting to see how paving the track will affect the speeds we run. It's a good change to go to a short track. Short tracks pose a different set of problems than superspeedways. You have a different way of thinking both in strategy and setup. We are looking to get the Klein Tools/Jim Beam car back on the podium where it belongs."
