41.1563 seconds   "The Menards/Johns Manville car feels good at the moment, we're slowing trimming out downforce, trying to get drag out of the car. We're learning a lot about what it takes to qualify well here, and then have a great car during the race. The wind picked up a bit in the afternoon, which gave us some trouble. Our times were consistent throughout our runs. We've moving forward looking into tomorrow."   Tomas Scheckter
220.434 mph
40.8285 seconds   "We had a great morning with our Chevy and learned some good things. We made some changes during lunch that we didn't like a whole lot. Still we're happy with today and we'll review everything in the morning. The Pennzoil Panther guys will get us ready for tomorrow and we should have another good day."   Notes: Scheckter has remained top Chevrolet through all practices .....
