What are your thoughts heading into this weekend's race at Auto Club Speedway?
"I'm really looking forward to this weekend at Auto Club Speedway. Our 31 team has shown we've got the speed this year. If we hadn't had the tire problem at Atlanta, I think we were the car to beat. Vegas was a little bit of a challenge and yet we still finished 11th. Phoenix we led more laps than we did in Atlanta, and frankly, we were pretty fast. Our team just needs to eliminate some of the mistakes we are making on pit road. We are by far, better than we were last year so I'm looking forward to building upon all our momentum and turning in a flawless performance this weekend. If we can do that, I feel it will translate into a win for us."

Interesting that Ryan thought they had the car to beat at Atlanta. I noticed how fast is was, even being laps down and having damage but I'm not sure it was that good.
