Crew chief Scott Zipadelli on New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “New Hampshire [Motor Speedway] is a home track for me, so I will get to see a lot of family and friends and it would be really special to get a win. On the racing side, we are bringing a car that we’ve run a few times this season and have had pretty good success with. New Hampshire is basically a big Martinsville. To pass someone you have to move them out of the way, or wait for them to make a mistake.”
Justin Allgaier on New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “New Hampshire [Motor Speedway] is one of the most difficult tracks we go to. It’s flat and very, very fast. Getting your car to turn without being too loose and getting forward drive is very important. Patience is probably the biggest key to New Hampshire, more than anywhere else we go. It’s a fun race track if your car is right, otherwise it makes for a long day.”
