KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Avenger)

HOW DOES THE GAMEPLAN CHANGE WHEN RAIN FALLS BEFORE THE FINAL PRACTICE? "Especially here at Dover it's kind of a bummer. You wait all weekend for (the track) to get rubbered up and then you go and practice and then that rain will wash that rubber off. And, then halfway through that practice again it changed, it got really rubbered in. You just roll with. We were excited that we had a good car to end the first practice so if we got the second practice or not we weren't too terribly worried."

ARE YOU CONFIDENT ABOUT THE CHANGES YOU NEED TO RUN WELL TOMORROW? "It's just a matter of getting the new car to turn. It's just very tight on corner entry; it wants to shoot up the track a little bit. So, if we can calm that down it should be a little better and that's going to be the focus tonight as we make our changes."

HOW DID THE RAIN CHANGE THINGS GOING INTO FINAL PRACTICE? "It just shortened it up, that was all. I thought the track was pretty much the same. We made some pretty big changes on the car but the track was the same. It maybe lost a little bit of grip because of the heat but we made some big changes with the alltel Dodge we'll see how they work out tomorrow."
