AUSTIN DILLON QUOTE:

What are your thoughts on New Hampshire Motor Speedway?

“New Hampshire Motor Speedway has always been a really fun track. I love going there. It’s a flat track. Entry is fun there. It’s different. It’s a different type of feel than what we have anywhere, but it will be interesting to experience it this year in the Next Gen Chevy. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the simulator to prepare. We’re going to go there and do everything we can to earn a win and lock ourselves into the NASCAR Playoffs.”

TYLER REDDICK QUOTES:

What does it take run well at New Hampshire Motor Speedway? 

“It's all about putting the entire race together, from the start to the finish. If you make mistakes at New Hampshire, they’re hard to bounce back from. Normally with 300 laps that sounds like a long time, but the way the race flows and how it plays out it really demands excellence. It’s about executing all day long, making the right adjustments all day long. The track could potentially change quite a bit whether we have resin on the track or not. That could play a factor in the race and how it goes. The straightaways are long at this track and the corners are flat. It’s a one-mile racetrack but it races somewhat like a short track with how you break the corner up and how corner entry is important. It always seems like there are a few different ways to get around a place like Loudon. You’ll see a lot of parity among the cars in the top five. Some up front will be running really fast on entry while some are set up for exit. We’ll just have to figure out where we need to be with our Guaranteed Rate Chevrolet and go from there.”  

 

You ran well earlier this year at Phoenix Raceway, a track that is comparable to New Hampshire. Does that give you confidence entering this weekend?

“It certainly does. We had good speed at Gateway as well and that gives me confidence, too. Looking at that speed should not be a problem. Confidence has been high all year long but especially at these flat tracks it seems like we have plenty of speed.”

SHELDON CREED QUOTE:

What’s your mindset like heading into this weekend’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway?

“I’m super excited for Saturday’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It’s a pretty new track for me. The last time I was there was in 2017 in a K&N car, and I finished fifth, so it was a pretty good racetrack for me. I feel like my team, and I can capitalize on that this weekend. We’ve got practice and qualifying on Friday so we can feel out the track and see how our car runs. I’m looking forward to getting out there and running up front like we did at Atlanta. Our results have shown the kind of cars we are bringing to the track every weekend so I’m ready to get out there and get a win for my team. It’s also really cool that Whelen has a headquarters in New Hampshire, I definitely want to get a good finish for them, too.”

AUSTIN HILL QUOTE:

Coming off a huge win at your home track of Atlanta Motor Speedway, how’s your motivation heading into this weekend’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway?

“I’m so thrilled for our No. 21 Bennett Transportation & Logistics Chevrolet team for getting the win last weekend at Atlanta. A win at your home track is always so special and I really think it’s the motivation our team needed as the playoffs are approaching. I’m actually really looking forward to getting to New Hampshire this weekend, too. We haven’t had the best short-track program this season and we’ve struggled to get the results we’ve needed. My team has been working really hard preparing for these races coming up and I think we’ve got a good plan heading into the weekend. Practice and qualifying will be really important since I haven’t been there in many years and it will give us a chance to see what we need for Saturday’s race. It’s going to be a good one, though, and I’m looking forward to parking our No. 21 in Victory Lane again.”
