JIMMIE JOHNSON, NO. 48 LOWE'S / JIMMIE JOHNSON FOUNDATION IMPALA SS - Pole winner:

ON HIS LAP:

"It was really good. I'm very proud of that lap. We went out kind of at the peak of the heat when things were just starting to break. And there were a few cars we were worried about, including A.J. (Allmendinger, qualified 2nd) and I think he did a great job putting down a good smooth lap, and certainly had us scared throughout the afternoon. So all in all, I'm just extremely pleased with the lap and progress we made throughout the day to make the car faster. We're happy to start up front and hopefully we can take advantage of that."
