MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON NEW HAMPSHIRE: "Last year we could hardly run in the top-20, and this year we have won four races. It is about the cars I drive and the way they are built. We have a lot of good tracks to go back to in the next few weeks.
MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON NEW HAMPSHIRE:
"Last year we could hardly run in the top-20, and this year we have won four races. It is about the cars I drive and the way they are built. We have a lot of good tracks to go back to in the next few weeks. I am really looking forward to going back to Loudon. We had a great race car there in July and ran over a piece of gravel or something with nine laps to go and got a flat tire. We not only lost the lead, we ended up 33rd. In the past New Hampshire has not been one of our stronger tracks, but the past two times there we had really fast cars. I think we might have a shot at it."
CREW CHIEF ROBBIE REISER'S THOUGHTS ON NEW HAMPSHIRE:
"We are taking car 22 this weekend to Loudon. It is the same car we had there the past two times. We basically repainted it, and are ready to challenge for a win again. Hopefully this will be the start of our charge towards the championship."
SPOTTER MIKE CALINOFF'S THOUGHTS ON NEW HAMPSHIRE:
"My view at Loudon is great there is not a single blind spot on the track. I am pretty pumped up to go back and run like we did in July."
