The car just didn't loosen up for qualifying.
KURT BUSCH (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 10th
"It was an OK lap with our Shell/Pennzoil Dodge. The car just didn't loosen up for qualifying. It's a long race tomorrow night. We just need to make adjustments during the race and stay up with track and be there in the end for a shot at a win."
BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 27th
"We haven't been very consistent on the mile-and-a-half tracks and I certainly didn't help myself today. I probably messed my qualifying lap up a bit. It's going to be a crapshoot. We've got a long race to wrench on it. Hopefully, we can get it right at the end of the race when it matters and put this Miller Lite Dodge Charger in victory lane."
ROBBY GORDON (No. 7 Fast Five/SPEED Energy Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 40th
"We picked up quite a bit from the earlier practice. When you have reverse qualifying and you think that you gained, track conditions change and the cars behind you pick up speed. The track is starting to come into its own. The high groove is coming into play. It's going to be good racing tomorrow with some good opportunities to pass. We'll go back, check the data and get our SPEED Energy Dodge ready for tomorrow night."
