Richmond: Dodge teams qualifying quotes

JEFF GREEN (No. 43 Betty Crocker/Cheerios Dodge Charger)

"We needed to go a little faster, but we picked up a little bit. That'll give us a good starting spot. I love to race here. I wish we raced here every week."

RUSTY WALLACE (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger)

"That was a good lap. I got loose on the first lap and I knew I had to get some heat in the tires. On the second lap I was able to bring it back. I was a little looser than I wanted to be. I was going to put a pound of air in the right rear tire, but I'm glad I didn't do that. That would have really got me in trouble. That's exactly what we ran when we tested here. A good handling car and fast pit stops and track position will be the key. That's what we're after."

TRAVIS KVAPIL (No. 77 Kodak/Jasper Dodge Charger)

"That was a little better than we ran in practice. The car didn't drive that good. I was a little surprised we went as fast as we did. There's a little more speed there if we had hit it just right. We were loose, but that's OK. We've been starting these races the past few weeks a little too tight. We haven't had good results the past two weeks. We need to stick around and be there at the end, and I think we've got a top 10 car if we can do that."

CASEY MEARS (No. 41 Target Dodge Charger)

"It wasn't a smooth lap. We were actually a little too tight. I had a hard time keeping it on the bottom. We've struggled here at Richmond, and I think we've got a package that's going to work pretty good for us. We've got a good car, so we'll see how it goes."

JEREMY MAYFIELD (No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger)

"I'm real happy with that. We did all race stuff in practice, absolutely no qualifying runs, no tape on the front. We're concentrating on the race this time. We put some tape on it and it worked great for qualifying. I wish I had it all to do over again. I tried not to be too aggressive, but the car is awesome. It's a brand new car, one of our in-house cars, and I think it's going to be really good in the race."
