"I am pleased with my car, and happy to be starting fourth. Of course I would have like to have had pole, but I'll take fourth. It was a good day for Ford today, I have had a good car all weekend and I feel comfortable with our race set-up. I'm looking forward to a safe, clean race. It's definitely going to be wheel - to - wheel; we just need to be sure to take care of each other. This is only our third race together and the guy's are doing a terrific job."
Tony Brunetti, General Manager:
"I am pleased with our fourth place qualifying effort. It's not quite as crucial to start up front on the ovals, but it is certainly more comfortable to be as close to the front as possible. We are looking forward to tomorrow, and staying on the lead lap, and hopefully fighting for the lead after our last stop."
