Kenseth on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"Track position has been really important at Charlotte since the introduction of this car with the spoiler. The pavement has a lot of grip and even though the track gets pretty wide, it's a real fast track and kind of hard to pass so track position is really important. You've got to be in position the last couple of stops in order to have a successful finish. I really don't feel like there's a big difference between the spring race and this race, but our Crown Royal Black team really just needs to have a solid race for all 500 miles Saturday night."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"It may not show in our results lately, but recently we've been running a lot better at intermediate tracks, so I'm hopeful that we can continue along those lines and win Charlotte. Matt really likes racing at Charlotte and he's had a lot of good races there. Even though there are two different grooves at Charlotte, track position is still very important, so we'll look to qualify well and have fast pit stops Saturday night as well."

Entering this weekend, Kenseth is currently eleventh in the NSCS driver point standings
