Ragan on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway:

"Atlanta is always a favorite of mine since it's my hometown track and also the hometown of my sponsor UPS. Racing there on Labor Day weekend is always fun. We're taking the same car that we ran in Chicago and did pretty well with. It's important for us to get a good finish and I feel confident we can. I'm really looking forward to getting back to another 1.5-mile track."

Crew chief Donnie Wingo on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway:

"I really like racing at Atlanta. There are multiple grooves and the tires wear out fast so it makes the driver have to work their way around the track to find different lines. It really is a challenging track because of the rate the tires wear out. So if you aren't too fast to start with and you can be consistent on a long run, you'll be better off in the end. Atlanta is home to David and our sponsor UPS, so we're looking to get a good finish for everyone."
