Eddie Wood, co-owner of the No. 21 Little Debbie Ford Fusion, commented on having Jeff Green in the car this weekend. Wood is hoping that qualifying takes place today because if it is rained out, his team will not make the race. Wood spoke to Ford Racing from the spotter's stand during Friday's delay.

"As we've done with Bill ever since we started this arrangement, I call him every week before finalizing our entry blank and ask him if he still wants to race for the coming week. When I spoke to Bill on Monday, he showed an interest in swapping out Bristol for Martinsville, so that's what we did. Jeff Green has a good record here and we thought putting him in the car would give us our best shot at qualifying on speed. I think what he's done in practice here today shows that we made a good decision. Unfortunately, when I saw the weather forecast I figured this was going to happen. I guess the most appropriate thing to say right now is that when it rains, it pours. This sort of typifies the way our season has gone so far."
