KEVIN HARVICK, NO. 29 SHELL-PENNZOIL IMPALA SS, QUALIFIED 11TH:

"Our Shell-Pennzoil Chevrolet was just a little bit tight, but not too bad. In practice we felt like we were pretty good in race trim so we should start off pretty good tomorrow night.

WHAT DO THESE IMPOUND RACES DO TO THE ROUTINE? "They just pile a lot of work on our guys and they thrash. Then we wait for hours to do anything. You just mentally have to know you are going to give up something in qualifying to have the setup you are going to need to start the race."
