“Kansas is one of my better mile-and-a-half tracks – especially since they repaved it. We were good right off of the bat with the repave, and now it has changed a good bit over the years, but it’s still one of my best tracks.”

“I definitely don’t look at Kansas as a stellar race track for me. I feel like it’s a very unique repave and the way the asphalt feels there to me is a little different than a lot of race tracks. I think I still have a lot to figure out at Kansas. I’m happy we got to run a Cup race there this year. I learned a few things and hopefully that will help going back. I lean on my teammates a lot, really for any of the races in general, but definitely at Kansas which is a place I haven’t run at a lot. Jimmie (Johnson) has had a lot of success there over the past couple of years having won a race and I think a lot of that can help. I’m also always leaning on Alan (Gustafson, crew chief) any way I can. He’s been a huge help all year long and I appreciate everything he has done for me to get going.”

“Heading into Kansas, the win in Charlotte certainly opens up the possibility for whatever opportunities may present themselves. We can go there to race and to win without pressure. This win at Charlotte also allows me go to Talladega and not worry about anything, which is fantastic. I can just get up in the race and mix it up, and race hard. We’ve also been very competitive at Texas, Martinsville, so good things ahead for us.”

Jimmie Johnson

“We had a really fast race car at Charlotte last weekend, so I’m looking forward to getting to another mile-and-a-half track and seeing what this No. 88 team can do. I like racing at Kansas and we know we’ve got speed, now we just need a little luck to go our way.”
