Richmond: Martin post qualifying interview

MARK MARTIN , NO. 8 U.S. ARMY IMPALA SS -- QUALIFIED 2ND ON HIS QUALIFYING LAP: "My car was pretty good in practice. But that doesn't always translate out. It's so easy to make a little slip or a mistake or whatever. I was really proud of that.

MARK MARTIN , NO. 8 U.S. ARMY IMPALA SS -- QUALIFIED 2ND

ON HIS QUALIFYING LAP:

"My car was pretty good in practice. But that doesn't always translate out. It's so easy to make a little slip or a mistake or whatever. I was really proud of that. We were the third car out, so we felt like we got a disadvantage on the draw, but at the same time, I was really pumped because we really had a good race car. If you got a bad draw, and you have a bad car, you've really got your hands full. So at least we had a really awesome car. And to be real honest with you, I was really surprised that it could hold up and that the time held up as well as it did against the shade coming over Turns 3 and 4."
