Kenseth on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

"Phoenix is a track that I really enjoy racing at. There are a lot of challenges when we race there,and we need to make sure that our Valvoline Ford handles well in all of the track's different corners in race trim. Qualifying is really important at Phoenix because it is difficult to pass, so track position is always a focus for our team when we arrive on Friday. If we can get our car to handle well, get good track position, and have fast pit stops, I think we can get another good finish for our No. 17 team this weekend."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

"We're basing our set-up for this weekend after what our team ran earlier this year at Phoenix since we felt it was a pretty good car overall. One of the main challenges of racing at Phoenix is always making sure the driver can see since the sun drops right in their line of sight early on in the race. This is another weekend where it's hard to pass, so track position will be important and we'll work on qualifying set-ups on Friday in an effort to get good track position right from the start of the race."
