"If I were you, I would bet on me this weekend. Our team is unloading a brand-new truck for this weekend's Smith's 350 and I have a good feeling it's going to be very competitive.

Buescher on returning to Las Vegas Motor Speedway -

"The team and I are really confident that we can go to Vegas and win this race after last weekend's performance. We had some trouble the week prior in Iowa, but this team never gives up. That is the type of performance you need to win championships. Las Vegas Motor Speedway falls right into our wheel house with it being an intermediate track and I would love to take Great Clips to victory lane again this weekend."

Miguel Paludo on driving at Las Vegas Motor Speedway -

"There is no doubt that I feel most comfortable on the mile-and-a-half speedways, and every time we visit one it's proof that this is where Turner Motorsports excels as an organization. I feel very confident going into Las Vegas after last weekend's race in Kentucky. Las Vegas is also very similar to Atlanta, and even though we didn't have the result we wanted there, we learned a lot that should help us perform really well this weekend."
