Jeff Ward Quotes - We're doing a lot better than we did when we were here last time. Testing here really helped a lot. Goodyear has a good front tire for us and our motor is better, so I can't complain. The track is a little slick right now. We're a little bit slower than we were at the test but the track is different now. We have the balance real good for qualifying, we should be in the top three or four. All in all, I think the car is pretty good.

Mitch Davis, Crew Chief Quotes - We unloaded with the same setup from the test and went out and ran the same times we ran at the test. The car is good in the cool but when the track gets hot everybody slows down, the track goes to push. We're right where we want to be. I think the pole is going to be 20.4 or 20.5 and we can run that tomorrow. We're going to practice qualifying in the morning.
