* This Week's Charger... The No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger team will use chassis PRS-708 during Sunday's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS). Keselowski last drove this chassis to a 20th-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.

Brad Keselowski on his goals for the Chase races

"I don't have any specific goals for the Chase races that we don't have any other week. We want to go out and do the best we can and challenge for wins. That doesn't change because we can't win the championship. It probably gives us some added incentive to go for wins because we don't have to worry about points. You do have to be mindful of who you are racing because you don't want to put yourself in bad spots with a guy in the Chase, but if I have a fast car I'm going to get all the positions I can."

Brad Keselowski on New Hampshire keeping both of its Cup Series dates in 2011

"I love the fact that New Hampshire is going to have both of its dates next year. It's one of those tracks we can go to and almost guarantee that it will be sold out. Any place that can do that deserves to have two races a year and deserves to keep them. The racing that we put on at New Hampshire sometimes gets a bad rap, but I think the spring race this year was one of the most-exciting finishes of the year. Last-lap or late-race passes put people in the stands and we had that at Loudon in June."

Crew chief Jay Guy on preparing for the second race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

"We had a decent run at Richmond last weekend and we're looking forward to applying some of those same setup ideas this weekend in Loudon. The tracks are really similar, especially the sweeping corners. New Hampshire has a little less banking, which makes it a little harder to pass. But I think we learned a lot from the first New Hampshire race that we can put together with what we learned at Richmond to give Brad a competitive car. He has a very solid Nationwide Series record there so hopefully we can match that this weekend."
