Quotes:

Casey Atwood:
"We got really lucky with the cloud cover during qualifying. A lot of the guys that went out before me didn't have that. We've got a great car and I'm just looking to finish better than 19th, my best finish in Winston Cup." Atwood scored his 19th-place finish at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway.

Ray Evernham:
"I am really happy. I honestly didn't expect for us to qualify in the top five. We have made a lot of progress in these three races, and we were able to pick up from practice to qualifying today, which we haven't been able to do in the past."

Notes:

* In the 1998 NASCAR Busch Series, Grand National Division race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Atwood scored the pole and finished 14th.

* Atwood will be working double time this weekend, as he races in both the NASCAR Busch Series race and the NASCAR Winston Cup Series race.
