Carl Edwards on racing at Auto Club Speedway:

"We had a really good run at Kansas and the strength of the Roush Fenway organization is as good as it's ever been. We're going to California which is a track we've had a lot of success at, and we've run very well as a team there. This is a track on the Chase schedule that I feel very confident at and feel like we have a great shot at a win there."

Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Auto Club Speedway:

"Historically California has been a really good track for Carl. He has finished in the top 10 in all but two of his Cup races there. The car we are taking was new at Atlanta in September and finished second so we feel it will be very competitive at California. We had another solid run last weekend at Kansas which moved us to within 53 points of the lead. With seven races left we have to keep chipping away at the points and keep working toward that win."

* Carl Edwards enters California fourth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup point standings, 53 markers behind point leader Jimmie Johnson. He has earned seven top-five,16 top-10 finishes and two poles this season.

* ON THE TRACK...The No. 99 Aflac crew will unload RK-702 for the weekend. Edwards finished second with it at Atlanta in September when it was new.
