Ragan on racing at Infineon Raceway:

"I'm looking forward to racing at a road course this weekend. I've been practicing my road racing with tests at Road Atlanta and I also went out to Sonoma last week to make a few laps out there. After two races at Infineon I think we should be competitive this weekend."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Infineon Raceway:

"Road courses haven't necessarily been David's strongest tracks in the past, but he's come a long way. We've been testing Road Atlanta and he's been out to Sonoma to make a few laps a week ago. We're taking a brand new chassis which we tested at Road Atlanta so I feel good about our chances this weekend."

FAST FACTS

* Ragan spent a few days last week at Infineon Raceway in a late model familiarizing himself with the 1.99-mile road course. Sunday's race will mark Ragan's third Sprint Cup Series start at Infineon.

* The Infineon primary chassis RK-660 recently tested Road Atlanta.

* The trophy for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 will be delivered via helicopter to Infineon Raceway. It will be unloaded by two handlers, placed in a UPS truck, in which Ragan will be riding, and taken for a lap around the road course before being delivered on a red carpet in the Wine Country Winner's Circle.
