“We had a good weekend at Atlanta and now we are headed to another mile-and-a-half. Las Vegas is really fast. Turns 1 and 2 are different from Turns 3 and 4, so you have two different corners with two different feels for each end. Over the years it’s gotten rough and has some interesting bumps and things that you have to make sure your car handles over and maneuvers through really well.”

“The surface is not very worn and I feel like that gives the track a lot of grip. Turns 1 and 2 have a lot of banking, while 3 and 4, to me, seem kind of flat for whatever reason. It can be a challenge to try to marry those two ends of the racetrack together for a race.”

“I’m proud to represent Lowe’s and Kobalt Tools this weekend at Las Vegas. For 16 seasons, Lowe’s has been on my Chevrolet SS and this is the biggest race to me where we can make them proud to be our partners and put them in Victory Lane. So, there is added pressure to win this race and to win the Kobalt wrench trophy. I hope we have a better weekend than we did last week in Atlanta, so we can be dialed in and focus on putting Lowe’s and Kobalt in Victory Lane.”

Jimmie Johnson

“I like the steep banking at Las Vegas. They reconfigured it many years ago and it’s much more fun with the steeper banking. I’m looking forward to the next couple of racetracks – there are a lot of fun racetracks coming up. I love the low-downforce package. The cars are hard to drive and everyone is out there being challenged. It’s awesome.”
