BRIAN VICKERS, No. 83 Red Bull Camry, Team Red Bull Starting Position: 3rd

How has the team improved its superspeedway program from the beginning of the year?

"The team has been working so hard at it. The COT program definitely helped catch us up to everyone else. Toyota came back with more power, and that always helps. The people at Team Red Bull just built a great car. Obviously the hard work has paid off. We had a good test here and practice was good yesterday. So far, we feel pretty good about it."

Can you talk about your qualifying lap?

"I just had to hit my shifts and hold it wide open. I'm so proud of these guys. Everybody at Team Red Bull and on the 83 car did a great job. This car is pretty good. We've caught up a little bit on the COT compared to where we were with the older car."
