Todd Kluever on Las Vegas:

"I'm really looking forward to racing at Vegas this weekend, especially after the road course in Mexico City last weekend. Being back on an oval will certainly make me feel a lot more in my element. Road racing is fun, but I'm glad I only have to do it once more this year.

"We had a pretty good test at Las Vegas last month so I expect us to be very competitive. I'm sure it will be tough since there will be a lot of Cup guys in the race like there were at California, but I enjoy racing with them because it helps speed up my learning curve. I'm going to be racing with them on a weekly basis next year, so the more track time I get with them now it will only help me be more prepared for the Cup races I run later this year and the full season next year.

"We're taking the same car we raced at California. Each race I learn more about how the Busch cars handle versus the trucks. It takes some time to get a feel for how big of an adjustment to make, but I think what I learned at California will definitely help me at Vegas this weekend."
