From the Cockpit:
Carl Edwards:
“We have had two solid runs to start the season and we head to Vegas with the new downforce package which was a lot of fun in Atlanta. We get to work on a bunch of things in the test sessions. It is always fun to go to Vegas. A lot of fans travel out there from all over, it’s a fun venue and it’s a great race track. We have ARRIS on board, we have a lot of fun with them so far this year and want to get a win and lock ourselves into the Chase. I think this will be the real test to this new package with the newer pavement and higher speeds and hopefully it’s a success.”

From the Pit Box:
Dave Rogers:
“I’m looking forward to having some test time in Vegas. We left Atlanta a little short of our goal, but the ARRIS team battled hard for another top five finish and learned a lot along the way. I’m excited to go to Vegas and build on that.”
