Menard on racing at Kansas Speedway:

"Kansas is a lot like Chicago, just with a straight backstretch, but overall the two tracks are pretty similar. We had a really good run going for the No. 98 team in Chicago and were caught up in a wreck, but should have had a top-10 finish. I think with the package we've worked on so much over the course of the season and the data we have from Ford, I'm looking for a strong weekend in our No. 98 Zecol / Menards Ford Fusion."

Crew Chief Larry Carter on racing at Kansas Speedway:

"Last weekend we focused really hard on qualifying on Friday afternoon and it completely paid off for the No. 98 Menards team. We started the race 10th and for the most part stayed up there all day. Paul has had some good runs this season at the intermediate tracks and I think is becoming more and more comfortable with our setups and how the cars run at the mile and a halves. If we can qualify well on Friday, I think we'll have another good showing in our No. 98 Zecol / Menards Ford Fusion."
