Elliott Sadler on Kansas: "I'm really excited about this weekend's race. Kansas Speedway is a great track and I love to race there, but I'm equally as excited about our Susan G. Komen for the Cure paint scheme. My mom, who has always been my biggest fan, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, so this is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. You very rarely meet a person who hasn't been affected in some way, shape or form by cancer and I'm proud to be wearing pink and driving the pink Stanley/Susan G. Komen Ford Fusion this weekend in support of that organization. This paint scheme is another example of the wonderful organization that my sponsor, Stanley, supports."

Crew Chief Todd Parrott's Thoughts on Kansas Speedway: "It's similar to Michigan International Speedway and especially Chicagoland Speedway, but it does have its differences and characteristics. You seem to fight grip there a little more. You need a good, fast car with a lot of engine and a lot of power. You have to have a lot of downforce and a really good balanced car to be successful at Kansas Speedway."

Chassis History: The No. 19 RPM team has prepared chassis No. 282 for this weekend's event. This is the same car the team utilized in the season's second event at Michigan International Speedway, where Sadler drove to a ninth-place finish. This chassis was also run at Chicagoland Speedway and at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway event.
