J.R. Hildebrand #26 AFS/AGR driver: "The #26 car was really good today right from the beginning. I think last week we kept trying to make changes to the set up and it put us behind. This week we just stuck to our original game plan, went out and were quick from the start. Hopefully we can stay up front tomorrow and hold on to our championship lead."
Sebastian Saavedra #27 AFS/AGR driver: "The car felt good during qualifying today and I think we have found a good set up. We would like to be starting a bit higher on the grid; our goal was to stay up front with J.R. (Hildebrand). But I still think we have a good race car and we'll be able to get through traffic during the race tomorrow."
