QUOTES

Carl Edwards on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

“I’m really pumped about running the Mustang for the first time in Las Vegas.  We are running the Roush Clean Tech Ford Mustang.  I have a feeling this is going to be a good race for us.  It’s great to be going to Vegas with all the lights and excitement.  The track has a great fan area and if you win the race they put you in the middle of the fans in the Neon Garage.  That’s where I want to be when the race ends.”

Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

“We have had a lot of success on mile-and-a-half tracks so we always look forward to racing in Vegas. Our guys are doing a great job setting up the cars for Carl and making sure we are knocking off accurate pit stops on pit road. We feel that we are strong contender for the win this weekend.”
