Kurt Busch (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger)

HOW WAS YOUR CAR IN FINAL PRACTICE? "Our Miller Lite Dodge has been improving all weekend. We were 10th in the final practice and I feel that we have made some really nice gains on our car. Anytime that you run at a mile-and-a-half race track, handling is always an issue. It's no different here at Kansas this weekend. We've worked hard to get our car balanced in both corner entry and exit. Pat (Tryson, crew chief) and the crew have done a really good job in getting our car better and better. I think that we have a consistent racecar heading into Sunday."

Brian Pattie (Crew Chief, No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge Charger)

HOW'S YOUR CAR IN PRACTICE TODAY? "I think we're pretty good. The car drives really good -- we've got a top-15 average in practice today. Juan (Pablo Montoya) seems to be comfortable in the car and our balance in corner entry and exit seems to be consistent. We just have to pass a lot of cars tomorrow starting in the rear."

Sam Hornish Jr. (No. 77 Penske Truck Rental Dodge Charger)

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE CAR? "I'm pretty happy with it. We were really happy the first part of the first session and the first part of this session, but we just keep making some changes that haven't really worked out for us. We've found out the things not to do so far and hopefully we'll continue to improve upon it. I think we've got a couple of good things that we're going to be able to do for the car to make it better."

CAN YOU COMMENT ON THE WARM CONDITIONS THIS WEEKEND. "Warmest when the Cup cars are here, yeah, for sure. I've been here when it's 114 or something like that. It's definitely a warm, cloudless sky, so the track got slicker and slicker. The fastest time from the second session was seven-tenths slower than the first session and that's what it's going to do tomorrow. I imagine as the race goes on and you get more and more people out there putting rubber down, it will improve."

Elliott Sadler (No. 19 GARMIN Dodge Charger)

HOW'S THE CAR HEADING INTO RACEDAY? "I'm pretty happy with where our GARMIN Dodge is right now. We've shown that we have plenty of speed and that's a good sign here. I expect the track to change a bit tomorrow as warm as it will be. Handling and cornering will be keys tomorrow. I few can protect our racecar and have some decent track position after our last pit stop, I think we'll have a good day tomorrow."
