JAN HEYLEN, NO. 7 XTREME INDOOR KARTING/BURLUSA STARWORKS MOTORSPORT FORD/RILEY:
YOU TOOK THE FIRST STINT IN THE CAR HOW DOES THE ROUSH YATES ENGINE FEEL TO YOU? "Well right now we're having a little problem with the set up on the car so hopefully during my next run we can get that a little bit better and hopefully we'll be able to race with the other cars a little bit. So this first stint was a little tough. The engine is running fine so no complaints there."
RYAN DALZIEL, NO 8 GROUT SHIELD/BURLUSA STARWORKS MOTORSPORT FORD/RILEY:
HOW DID THE ROUSH YATES ENGINE FEEL TO YOU DURING THIS FIRST STINT? "We're good definitely got some strong straight lane speed seemed like we had the legs on the Ganassi car so at early gaze it's definitely a good sign for tomorrow."
AJ ALLMENDINGER, NO. 6 CONTINENTAL TIRES/CURB RECORDS/PVA/ROCKY FORK COMPANY MICHAEL SHANK RACING WITH CURB/AGAJANIAN FORD/DALLARA:
HOW DID THE MOTOR FEEL TO YOU DURING THIS FIRST STINT? "The motor is running fine, the car is a bigger problem. Motor runs fine down the straight-aways the problem is you can't put any power down to the ground to get it to go so it's running fine."
OSWALDO NEGRI JR, NO. 60 CROWN ROYAL XR MICHAEL SHANK RACING FORD/RILEY:
HOW'S THE ROUSH YATES ENGINE WORKING FOR YOU SO FAR? "It's running good. The car is flawless and the engine is doing as we expected, pretty well. Running P4, P5, those first couple of hours is pretty encouraging. The car will be good."
