"The Centrix Honda felt really good in practice on Saturday. I'm pleased with the settings for Sunday. I think that Buddy and I should be able to run right at the front of the pack. We want to be in the right position at the end of the race because it will be a real battle for the win. I expect as many as eight to ten guys to be right there at the finish. And I want to be at the head of that pack."

BUDDY RICE (No. 15 Pioneer/Argent Mortgage Honda G-Force)

"We were in a good position during practice Saturday. Actually, Saturday afternoon was more a test for us as we were working on things for next year already. Sunday's race is going to be the usual Texas two and three wide racing. There will be big packs of cars fighting for positions and I think you'll see some fuel economy runs too. Some guys will try to stay in the draft and save fuel so they can go for the hard at the end of the race. We'll just have to see you is in the right spot late the race. I'm sure it will be a close finish like it always is here at Texas."
