Notable Quotables Featuring Cup Series Drivers About Atlanta

We’ve collected some quotables from NASCAR Cup Series drivers concerning this weekend’s racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway…

Denny Hamlin, #11 FedEx #SupportSmall Toyota

“We just need to continue what we’ve done all season. We had a great car in Bristol and were in a good position towards the end with the lead, just made an error late in the race pushing for all I had trying to keep the lead for the win. We’re fast, we’re up front every week. We’ll keep digging and hopefully end up in Victory Lane this weekend at Atlanta.”

Chris Buescher, No. 17 Fastenal Ford Mustang, on racing at Atlanta:

“We’re looking for a bounce back run this weekend in our Fastenal Ford. I had a solid run there a year ago, and it makes for a fun yet challenging 500 miles with options to run the wall, or keep the car down on the line. We’ve had our high points in the last four weeks, we just need to finish one off with a solid run this weekend.”

Martin Truex Jr. ­– No. 19 Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota Camry

Talk about going to Atlanta in June versus the track’s regular early-season date…
“Atlanta is always a fun place to race because of the surface and how worn out it is. It has been a few years since we’ve raced there when it’s really hot to bring out just how slick the track can get, so that will be a bit of a challenge going in with no practice. I’m looking forward to it. I feel pretty good about how we have ran on the bigger tracks where handling comes into play. We need a little bit of speed overall, but we’ve been able to run pretty well at tracks where the surface is slicker, so I feel confident about the car we’ll unload and how we’ll run on Sunday.”

Erik Jones, No. 20 STANLEY Toyota Camry:

“Atlanta has been a good track for us in the past and I think we’ll have a good race this weekend in Atlanta. The track is old, worn out and slick and that makes for good racing. We’ve run well the last few weeks and I think we can continue that this weekend. I think Atlanta is a place where we should run well and have a shot to contend for our first win of the season.”

Christopher Bell – No. 95 Rheem Toyota Camry

“Atlanta is one of my best and favorite tracks. With it being hot this weekend, the track is going to be super slick, just the way I like it. We’ve been making a lot of progress and I’m hoping we can carry that momentum over into this weekend.”
