Kenseth on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"Saturday night's race at Richmond is the last chance to make the Chase and I really think there's going to be a lot of excitement under the lights. We were fortunate enough to lock in a Chase spot last weekend at Atlanta so we don't have as much pressure on ourselves as other teams may, but honestly you always want to do all that you can to run up front week in and week out. We'll work on putting together good runs at Richmond to keep our momentum going this weekend and then for the final ten races of the season."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"We have a brand new car that we're bringing to Richmond this weekend. It's a good feeling knowing that we earned a spot in this year's Chase, but now we need to focus even more on consistency and making sure that we're doing the best we can every week. The biggest challenge at Richmond is getting off the corner straight and not spinning the rear tires. We're always working on rear grip without losing the front end in the middle of the turns."
