MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON PHOENIX: "PIR reminds me of some tracks I used to run in Wisconsin. Its pretty flat but we have been running well on these types of tracks this year so I'm hoping to get a good finish. We finished fourth there last year, and hope to improve on it."

CREW CHIEF ROBBIE REISER'S THOUGHTS ON PHOENIX: "We are taking car MMR-023. This is the car we won Richmond with - it's a brand new car built this year and only raced at Richmond. That car is undefeated- and we'd like to keep it that way."

SPOTTER MIKE CALINOFF'S THOUGHTS ON PHOENIX: "The toughest part of spotting at Phoenix is that the spotters stand is in turns one and two. It creates a parallax view, which makes it difficult to clear the cars on the front and backstretch."
