PRE-EVENT QUOTES...

Johnson's response to being defeated earlier in the year by his teammate, Richie Stevens, Jr., at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

"We're not looking for any revenge...I'm hoping we meet up in the finals. He got me first round in the spring; I'd like to get him this weekend in the finals. That would be a fun match up. In all seriousness, I hope both Richie and I are able to qualify well and go several rounds this weekend. Our goal is to get him into the Top-10 in the points and to get me in the Top-five for the end of the season. We're focused on finishing on a strong note."

"With the progress that we've made this season, it's very feasible that we can finish in the Top-five in points. It would also be great to be the highest finishing Dodge/Mopar team. Our team has worked hard to gain ground this year; building relationships, developing our engine program. It's paid off in our performance. Dad's [Roy Johnson] continues to gain ground for us; he's picked up more horsepower for this weekend's race. I think we'll gain a little ground this weekend and be in a position to finish off the season the way we'd like."
