“Last year, they had a little bit of snow down here, and everybody was panicking. In Canada, it wouldn’t even make the news.” — Mechanic Craig Fletcher, who lived north of the border for 35 years

“I was a hero on fajita day.” — Chris Lopez, team chef
“You don’t quite get as much sleep as you’d like.” — No. 83 transporter driver Scott Denton on the trip to Fontana, Calif.
