KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Operation Home Front/Miller Lite Dodge Charger) Qualified 15th
"A pretty good qualifying run for the Miller Lite Dodge. We came, we played, and we ended up just a little bit short. I was running the high side and had just a little wiggle in between (Turns) 3 & 4 and had to check up. The track was really fast. We'll take it. That 19 (28.19 seconds) that Jeff (Gordon) ran was pretty stout. Five-hundred miles here is a long race. We know how to run well here and we know our way to victory lane. We've got our eye on a big prize and a chance to make history. We'll dial in our Miller Lite Dodge tomorrow and get after it Saturday night."
SAM HORNISH JR. (No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger) Qualified 19th
"It was a solid effort by the Mobil 1 Dodge. I felt just a little bit free and couldn't get back to the throttle like I needed to. I think we definitely have something to work with for Saturday."
BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger) Qualified 31st
"Man that lap felt faster than a 28.57 lap. I can't complain because the car felt so good. Either way we'll take it. Our Dodge's are fast. It's gonna be a great show Saturday night. The track is really fast and there is a ton of grip. Race conditions are going to be pretty awesome."
