David Ragan No.6 Discount Tire Ford Fusion

"We struggled mightily in Dover last weekend, so we are looking to rebound this weekend in Nashville. Everything is in place for us to succeed. Our Ford Fusion is fast, our pit crew is awesome and we know the track fairly well. I know this Discount Tire team is ready to get to victory lane, but we have to make sure we stick to our game plan every week. I am confident the worst is behind us and we can concentrate on continuing to get top-10 and top-five finishes. The wins will come as long as we stay within striking distance at the end of every race."

Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Nashville:
"I can't wait to get to Nashville. We are in need of a great run. We put ourselves in a hole in the standings recently, and it is time to dig ourselves out. I know we are capable of top-10 and top- five runs every week, but we have to make sure we are prepared as soon as we unload our car. I know we are capable of magical things at this track, but we have to believe that in order to be successful."

Greg Biffle No.16 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion

"Nashville is always a tough race. Having someone else set up your car for you is hard, but I trust Casey (Atwood) and I know he knows his way around this track really well. I'm sure Eddie and the CitiFinancial guys will give me a fast car. Hopefully I make it in time for qualifying so we don't have to start from the back. If that's the case, we should be up front all night."

Crew chief Eddie Pardue on racing at Nashville Superspeedway: "We'll be good at Nashville. I'm excited that Casey Atwood agreed to come help us get the CitiFinancial Ford Fusion ready for Greg on Saturday. Stand-alone races are hard when you have a Cup driver in your car, but we know the kind of setup that Greg likes to run and we should be pretty fast when he shows up. We're coming off of a good race last week at Dover and hopefully we can keep the momentum going."

Carl Edwards No.60 World Financial Group Ford Fusion

"It will be great to head to Nashville this weekend. We have a lot of momentum from Dover. It will be great to have World Financial Group on our Ford Fusion. Nashville Superspeedway is awesome and we fell short earlier this year. My goal is to get us back into victory lane and chip away at the points lead."

Crew chief Pierre Kuettel (P.K.) on racing at Nashville Superspeedway:
"We had a great run at Dover, but we came up a little short. The No.60 World Financial Group team is looking for a win in a major way. The drought has to end, and Nashville is the place to do it. Carl has dominated at the track and we expect nothing less this time around."
