Alex Bowman Quotes:
"I am really excited to get back to Kentucky Speedway because of how well RAB Racing performed there last year. We easily had a top-five finish going until the part broke, and that one race is what sparked the interest and the talks to where I could run for RAB Racing full time this year. I think the combination between the information we receive from TRD, and the Joe Gibbs Racing Engines suit these kinds of tracks very well."

Chris Rice Quotes:
"I love Kentucky Speedway because it has some character to it; it's not your typical cookie-cutter track. It's rough, it has grip, and you have to have aero. I'm also looking forward to going back to a place that Alex has run one of our cars at before. We've had some bad luck the past couple of weeks, but we're hoping to turn it around at Kentucky. "
