Ragan on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"Richmond is a great track and a place we've had some success at in the past. Saturday night short-track racing is a lot of fun for us as drivers and for the fans and with it being the last race before the Chase things should be pretty interesting. Every race is important to our UPS team from here on out and we really need to get back to finishing in the top five, or top 10. Hopefully this is the weekend it all comes back together."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"It's frustrating to be on the outside looking in this weekend and not be in the mix for the Chase, but we'll have to make the best of the last few races this season and turn things around for next year. We are fully capable of doing just that and this weekend should be a good race for us."
