Kurt Busch (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger)

YOU WERE THE FASTEST DODGE IN BOTH PRACTICE SESSIONS TODAY. HOW IS YOUR MILLER LITE DODGE HEADING INTO RACEDAY TOMORROW? "We were searching for a tighter set up in the first practice and then the track changed in-between the two practice sessions. That made us double check everything that we had which killed about a half-hour and then we were tight in the second practice. We have both of those setups and we'll just shoot somewhere in the middle. I was running loose on the last run and built up tight on the air pressure, so that's what's disappointing."

DO YOU THINK TIRE WEAR WILL BE AN ISSUE TOMORROW? "You never know. When you build a car that's heavier on the right side, has less downforce and doesn't turn, you're going to wear out tires. I hope Goodyear did their homework for raceday."

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR YOUR TEAM TO WIN ON A 1.5-MILE TRACK THIS SEASON? "It would be big. That's where we have struggled most of the season, but as of late the mile-and-a-half tracks have been better for us. So if we can get a win here and get our short-track program in better shape, I think that we'll be heading in the right direction."

WHAT'S THE KEY FOR THE 2 CAR TOMORROW? "We have to run our own pace. There are guys that will be faster than us off the get-go. There are some guys that will be faster later in the run. We just have to run our own race and own pace and race the race track for 500 miles."
