Double duty: Three drivers -- Alex Tagliani, Andrew Ranger and Ray Courtemanche Jr. -- will compete in both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Canadian Tire Series events this weekend.

Try, try again: "You know, the biggest thing, I think, is just taking care of your equipment -- making sure you don't shift when you're not supposed to and burn the brakes off the thing, and ultimately just finish this race. I've never claimed to be a road race expert, so having said all that, I just need to keep all four tires on the asphalt all day and I think we'll come away with a better finish than what we think we can." -- Johnny Sauter

Road course compliments: "Road course racing is a blast. It's a lot of fun turning left and right, plus shifting." -- John Hunter Nemechek on racing at CTMP

Applied experience: "It will be kind of new, but with all the data acquisition, simulation and all the other stuff we use these days, I don't know if you are ever truly going to a race track for the first time." - No. 51 crew chief Eric Phillips on both he and driver Erik Jones racing at Mosport for the first time

Collaborative effort: "(Friday), I was going around with the Ford safety truck with Matt Crafton and Ben Kennedy ... and Matt was pretty nice to give us some tips of what he felt last year around the track. I think as a driver, you have to feel the beast that you're going to be driving, and then it makes more sense once you're in the truck. So all the things that he was saying to us while we were driving out there, they were very valuable and then they all made sense because when I went out, what he was saying, it really kind of applied on what the truck was doing out there. So it was quite nice of him to give us all those tips before we went out." -- Alex Tagliani

Whew!: "I'd say one ... trying to push it into 5 A and B, back in the corner there, I'd gotten in a little too hot, and you've always gotta have a couple of those or you're not driving it hard enough." -- Cameron Hayley on whether he'd had any nervous moments Saturday.
