Todd Kluever on Nashville:

"I'm really looking forward to the race at Nashville this weekend. I think everyone will see what a big hurdle we cleared last weekend at Texas when we get to Nashville. We tried some different stuff with our set-up in Texas and it really paid off, although you can't tell that from our 21st-place finish. Our 3M Ford Fusion was fast throughout the whole race, not just in the beginning. That was by far the 100 percent best car we've had at the end of a race all season in Texas. If we could have qualified better and started toward the front we could have stayed there. We know what made us so loose during qualifying in Texas and we can fix that. We lost a lap pretty early in the race starting that far back and by the time we got the lucky dog pass we did not have enough time to gain any track position with all the cautions at the end.

"The homework Mike Kelley (crew chief) and the guys did for the Texas race will really be evident at Nashville. I'm excited to go there this weekend and show how good this team really is."
