“New Hampshire is a tough track and track position is very important because getting around traffic can be very difficult. We have three top 10s in a row and my team has been a doing a great job of bringing fast cars to the track.”

Kasey Kahne

“It’s just so hard to pass at New Hampshire – that’s the first thing that comes to my mind. It’s a tough place. It’s very easy to get frustrated when you catch somebody and it’s just so hard to get around them. At that racetrack, it’s a very fine line of being too low on the racetrack or being too high. The paving seams are very thick and wide and can upset your corner a lot. I think keeping that stuff in mind is the biggest thing that I think of when it comes to Loudon and the challenges you face. Things can go wrong there just as fast as they can anywhere else but I do think the frustration level sometimes can raise easier there than it can other places. But if you have your car driving like you want it to and you’re taking the correct approach throughout the day, then it shouldn’t be any different than the other tracks.”

Chase Elliott

“No words can describe the disappointment I have for what happened in Chicago with the pit road speeding penalty. All you can do is let it soak in and come back next week and be at 100 percent again and get ready to take this Lowe’s car to Victory Lane. We had a lot of speed at New Hampshire last time out and we know what we need to do when we get there.”

Jimmie Johnson

“Everyone on this No. 88 team has been working very hard and our communication has been great. I’ve been able to run up front every race and that shows how good Hendrick Motorsports is and how good we can be. Getting our first top-10 at Chicago last weekend was really good. I’m more confident than I’ve ever been going back to Loudon. We had a really fast race car last time, so I think we have a good opportunity this weekend.”
