Roush Fenway has made 209 starts across all three of NASCAR’s three major divisions at New Hampshire. All-in-all the organization boasts nine wins, 49 top-five and 86 top-10 finishes, while leading just over 2000 laps in NASCAR action at New Hampshire.
Greg Biffle on racing at Loudon: “I’m looking forward to Loudon; it’s been a good track for us. I have a win there and I feel like it’s a track where we can get back into the hunt. We certainly aren’t out of it, but a good run will help. Hopefully we can get a good top-five finish or a win in our 3M Ford this weekend.”
Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Loudon: “New Hampshire is a flat one-mile track that we have had some success at. Greg has a win there, and we are bringing the same car that we ran at Richmond. We had some brake issues earlier this year, which prevented a better finish. We are looking to make our way back up the point standings with a good run this weekend.”
Matt Kenseth on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “New Hampshire is a really challenging track because it’s a one-mile track that drives like a flat short track. It seems like you’re always fighting for position there because the track is so narrow that it’s difficult to pass, so we really rely on good pit stops to help gain positions. Loudon has been a place that I’ve struggled at but our goal is to get a good clean run on Sunday in order to make up some of our position in the point standings that we lost last weekend at Chicago.”
Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “Hopefully we’ll qualify better this weekend at Loudon because we’re going to look at some different set-ups that we’ve been working on. In the spring, we may not have finished where we wanted to, but I felt like our car raced well at Loudon. The car we’re bringing this weekend we last ran at Richmond, and although it wasn’t a winning car there, we know what the car does and how it reacts to certain set-ups. We know this is one of our worst tracks, but we’re going to work as hard as we in order to get a good run this weekend.”
Carl Edwards on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “This track is big for us because it’s the home of the Red Sox and our partnership with Fenway Sports Group so it would be a huge honor to be able to win there for them. Qualifying is very important. Everyone is going to be pulling out all the stops, doing every strategy trick they can and I think having a good pit stall will be important, starting up front and having clean air. If there’s a long green-flag run, you don’t want to be mired in the back going a lap down. All of that stuff comes from a good qualifying effort.”
Crew chief Chad Norris on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “New Hampshire is a tough track and the races often come down to fuel mileage. Carl has run well there in the past, although we don’t have many great finishes there. This weekend we are taking a car that has run well for us all season and we hope to try a few things to help us in future races. ”
