Kenseth on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:

"Everyone always talks about Talladega being the wild card race in the Chase, and I guess it really could be. Any of the races in the Chase can always end up being a wild card because you never know what's going to happen as far as wrecks are concerned, but certainly Talladega always has the potential to be an accident waiting to happen. You never know where it's going to occur, when it's going to happen, or who it's going to take out, so that's one race that you're never sure where everybody is going to end up finishing until the race is over."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:

"It's very difficult to have a plan for racing at Talladega because you never know when wrecks are going to happen. There can be incidents starting from the drop of the green flag so you just never know. A lot of teams opt to hang out in the back of the field to try to avoid wrecks, but that doesn't always work out. We just plan to race the best we can at Talladega and hope to avoid whatever happens on the track. We've also worked hard on our drag numbers to keep the resistance levels down in order to have the best car we can for this weekend."

Entering this weekend, Kenseth is currently tenth in the NSCS driver point standings
