Stenhouse on Auto Club
“We are bringing the same car that we tested with at Las Vegas. We had a lot of speed during the test so I feel confident going into this weekend. NOS Energy Drink sponsored me last year and stepped up to the Cup Series this year so it would be great to get a solid finish in their paint scheme this weekend. We’ve been strong at other mile-and-a-half tracks so I feel we should have a strong showing in our No. 17 NOS Energy Drink Ford this weekend.”

Graves on Auto Club:
“We are still learning the new Gen-6 car, but I feel that as a new team in 2013 that we have done a great job so far. During our mile-and-a-half tests, we have showed speed in the No. 17 Ford. I think if we keep building on what we learn each week that we will be strong contenders soon. We will work on getting the NOS Energy Drink Ford dialed in to Ricky’s liking and hopefully leave Fontana with a strong top-ten run.”
