BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger) Qualified 6th

"Just a little too loose on my second lap. I went for it (pole). I thought that my second lap would be a little bit faster. Everybody is running pretty good second laps and I just got a bit loose. A great effort by everyone on this 12 Dodge team. A great first lap that puts us near the top of the leader board. We made improvements all day on our race car. Great calls by Jay (Guy, crew chief) and the guys to give me a fast Dodge and starting spot near the front tomorrow night."

KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger) Qualified 16th

"A little loose towards exit. It wasn't bad. Pretty much what we expected, having to go out so early in qualifying. The cars in the later part of the (qualifying) session are going to have a pretty big advantage. That's racing. We unloaded a fast Miller Lite Dodge and had two strong practice sessions. The real racing begins tomorrow when the sun goes down."

SAM HORNISH JR. (No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger) Qualified 27th

"We haven't had a good car all day long. We've been fighting between being way too loose and way too tight. I still don't feel like we have a real good place to be with our Mobil 1 Dodge. We'll just have to take a look at Brad (Keselowski) and Kurt's (Busch) numbers and see what we need to do for tomorrow and hope that we make the right choice."
