David Ragan, driver of the No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion, posted the fastest practice round of any Ford, finishing second with a time of 23.272. Ragan spoke about the practice run and how he feels heading into Sunday.

YOU WERE FAST OUT THERE, BUT IS THE CAR COMFORTABLE? "It's okay. Our UPS Ford was fast in race trim. It was pretty good yesterday in race trim, and I think that gave us confidence going into today. I think the car has some speed, we just need to fine tune things from here.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO ACCOMPLISH IN THIS FINAL PRACTICE SESSION? "I need to pay attention to how much rubber is getting laid down on the race track. I need to figure out how much to adjust or not over adjust the car. We really have to turn through the center. Our UPS Ford is fast and that is good. It looks like a lot of the Ford cars were fast out there today and that is good to see."

YESTERDAY YOU TALKED ABOUT BALANCE BEING THE KEY, DO YOU FEEL YOU ARE BALANCED OUT THERE? "We are close. It was pretty good off the truck yesterday, which allowed us to be pretty good today in race trim. I think we got a head start on everyone yesterday. We still need to get it to turn a little better through the center of the corner. As more and more cars get out there and the track rubbers up we will have to make some adjustments. Hopefully we can focus on that in the happy hour and make some pretty good changes for tomorrow."
