David Gilliland on Kansas:

"I've only been able to race at Kansas twice with the Cup series. Last year we were running really well but then we had that long rain delay and we got caught up in an accident, so I didn't have a great finish. Our performance lately has been up and we've had very fast cars when we unload off the truck each weekend. I'm looking forward to this weekend's race. We just need to stay out of trouble and secure the finishes our cars are capable of and I think this weekend at Kansas could be just the opportunity we've been looking for. I'm excited to travel to Kansas this weekend with our No. 38 Ford. Drive one. team."

crew chief Cully Barraclough on Kansas:

"We only have the chance to go to Kansas Speedway once a year, so it's difficult to look ahead to this weekend and truly know what to expect. The track that we'll look to our notes on would be Chicago since the tracks are very similar. As the year goes on, we're able to learn more about what David's needs are when it comes to the car set-up and our goal every week is to build upon what we learned from the weeks prior to that race. We're looking ahead to a strong run for our Ford. Drive one. team this weekend at Kansas."
