JEREMY MAYFIELD (No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger) -- 30th

"That's the best we've run all day. That's all you can ask for is to pick up in qualifying and that's what we did. Our Charger is real good in race trim. Hopefully we'll be in good shape for tomorrow night. We just worked on race stuff in practice. We picked up three tenths in qualifying, so that's better than losing three tenths."

DAVID STREMME (No. 40 Coors Light Dodge Charger) -- 4th

"It was a pretty good lap. The guys have been working hard. This is a borrowed car from the 41 team. I thought I could have gotten more in one and two, but we had to be a little conservative. We just wanted a solid starting spot. From here on out we've got to change things, and I think we can do that. I love Darlington. It's a drivers' track."

BOBBY LABONTE (No. 43 Cheerios/Betty Crocker Dodge Charger)--11th

"It was a good effort and we'll have a good run out of it. We made the right changes before qualifying and hopefully we'll make some more good decisions before the next practice and have the car ready to race tomorrow night."

KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger) -- 10th

"This place is fun. One and two is completely different than three and four. We left a little bit of time on the table in turn two. It got a little tight over there. It was a great run for the Miller Lite Dodge. It feels good to be back at Darlington."

CASEY MEARS (No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge Charger) -- 21st

"If I could have got that after practice I would have been happy, but everybody else has gone so much faster in qualifying that I'm not very happy with it. It didn't really feel that good in practice, either. We picked up and I'm happy with that. I gave it a banzai in practice, and I didn't think we were going to be able to pick up much. We'll be in the middle of the field, but that's all right. We just need to come home with a solid finish. I'd be happy with a top 10 at Darlington."
