Carl Edwards: "I’m really looking forward to going to Las Vegas in both the No. 99 and No. 60 World Financial Group Fords," stated Edwards. "We had two great tests in Las Vegas in both cars and I have a lot of faith in both Brad (Parrott, crew chief No. 60 Ford) and Bob to give me everything I need to go out and do my job the best that I can do it."

Dale Jarrett: "We had a good test there, so I’m looking forward to going there for that. I always enjoy going to Vegas and having a little bit of fun, along with racing and having fun on the race track."

Kurt Busch: "Vegas is great. It’s a place where it almost deserves two dates just because everybody has so much fun outside the race track. But for us it’s been a good track in the past. We finished ninth there last year and we hope to do better than that this year. It’s just a matter of getting that balance through the whole run. That place makes the car very tight at the end."

Jamie McMurray: "We didn’t have a very good test there. Fontana and Vegas testing went terrible for us, but I think we learned some stuff at California that we can apply at Vegas. It’s a great racetrack. It’s the best racetrack as far as the town we get to go to on our schedule. I’m really looking forward to getting to Vegas. I think I ran fourth last year. We thought we had something that could win last year at Vegas, but I hit the wall with something like 100 laps to go and the car didn’t drive as well after that, but we still finished in the top five. Usually when guys run well at California they run well at Vegas."
