Stenhouse on Kansas:

“I’m looking forward to racing at Kansas Speedway this weekend. We tested there a few weeks ago and I feel confident in our 1.5-mile track program. Kansas is a fast, smooth track which I like. After the past two weekends, we can only get better. It would be awesome to get our first top-10 finish this weekend with all the Zest plant managers there and with the plant being so close to the track.”

Scott Graves on Kansas:

“We had a successful test at Kansas a few weeks ago and learned a lot so hopefully those notes will lead us to our first top-10 finish of the season. As an organization we have been working hard on our 1.5-mile track program. The past two weekends have been tough so we need a top-10 finish this weekend to gain some spots in the point standings.”
