KENNY WALLACE ON MEXICO ...

"I understand why we are going down there. NASCAR is trying to create diversity and this is a very good thing. I think it will be a great experience.

"I'm not surprised by all the star power that is going to be racing in Mexico because everyone wants to make history. All the stars want to go so they can say they went. It will be something fun to do. It's a fun environment."

"I really look up to him. He's an accomplished racer and a great person. I have told him everything I know about Busch racing. It's kind of funny because now I am going to him for pointers on the Mexico race."

CREW CHIEF WES WARD ON MEXICO...

"We haven't tested there yet, but I am looking forward to it. Kenny is a good road racer, and we are taking a brand new car down for the race. It should be a lot of fun."
