SCOTT RIGGS (No. 10 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge Charger)

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT STARTING FROM THE INSIDE OF THE FRONT ROW? "Confused. I'm confused how I qualified fourth yesterday and I'm starting from the inside of the front row. Really, I hate it. I hate it for Jimmie (Johnson) and those guys. Those guys are for a championship. They've been on their game, did all the right things and sit on the pole and now they've got to start in the rear, but I'd bet you money that they'll be walking their way to the front pretty quick. We just want to get out there and have a good day. We want to have a good solid day. We're not out there trying to take any guys out or push any guys out of the way. We just want to have a good solid competitive run tomorrow."

DOES STARTING FROM THE FRONT AFFECT THE WAY THAT YOU SET UP THE CAR? "Oh no. You just make it as comfortable and as fast as you can. Where you start doesn't really matter. It's how racy it is at the beginning of the race."

REED SORENSON (No. 41 Target/Lysol Dodge Charger)

COMMENT ON BEING SECOND FASTEST IN PRACTICE - "Yeah, the car was pretty decent. We stayed on the same set of tires pretty much the whole time and there at the end put on some new tires. We were on old tires so we know kind of what it feels like on old tires so that's a good thing.

COMMENT ON THE RACING SURFACE FOR TOMORROW - Slick. The race track's real slick. It's got another year on it. It's a lot flatter than a lot of the mile-and-a-halves we go to, so it's going to be pretty slick all day.

IF IT RAINS OVERNIGHT HOW WILL IT AFFECT THE RACE? "It'll affect the first 50 laps, and then after we get rubber down on the track it will be the same.
