From the Driver’s Seat:

Regan Smith: “Phoenix is going to be interesting this coming weekend with the new straightaway and moving the Start/Finish line. I don’t think that it’s going to affect anything that we do on the race track driver-wise, but it certainly is going to look different and be a bit more unique for the fans that are watching along in the stands. This weekend should create a bit of buzz with the new infield, and all the cool new elements associated with the remodel. The race track itself is one of the best places we go to in my opinion. Both ends of the track are very unique and very different, so it really forces you to have to adapt. You have to take the good and the bad with you car sometimes because you won’t able to make it entirely perfect at both ends of that track. There’s a lot of times where you have to be willing to sacrifice in one area if you want to be better in another area there typically. Phoenix presents a lot of challenges on both the drivers and the crew chiefs because of that, but it’s also one of the most rewarding tracks, and one of the most fun tracks to drive on when things are going well.”

From the Pit Box:

Jon Leonard: “Going back to Phoenix this weekend, I’m really looking forward to the re-configuration of the track. It’s not much different from a car set-up perspective, but more-so from the fan and racing experience. Richmond did a similar change to their infield, and I think it really helped the fans get closer and understand what goes on throughout the weekend rather than just seeing cars on track. We ran decent at Phoenix in the Spring this year and were actually probably better there in last Fall’s race, so we’re basing a lot of what we’re trying to achieve off those two races. The right-side tire is a bit different for this weekend so there will be some adjusting to that, but I don’t expect much fall-off or wear difference from the races there in the past. Phoenix is usually about qualifying well and playing the right strategy in the race. As we’ve seen in almost all of the Playoff races so far, as long as you’re on the lead lap, you have a shot at a good finish. It’s the last race before the season finale Championship race at Homestead-Miami, so I’m sure there will be differing strategies, differing agendas, and some drama at the end. We’ll do our best to get a good finish in the Procore Chevrolet in their last race of the season in order to build some momentum heading into Championship weekend next week.”
