ELLIOTT SADLER (No. 19 Best Buy Dodge Charger) "I think that we had a good practice. We learned some things about our car on what works and what doesn't work. I feel good about tomorrow. I feel like we can make a good run tomorrow, a good consistent finish. We're definitely a lot better than what we were in Atlanta. I think that we're making some good strides and that's a good feeling. I'm proud of my guys on the Best Buy Dodge -- they're giving me a good race car tomorrow and I think that we'll have a good day.

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO GET THE CAR TO HANDLE TOMORROW IN TURNS 2 AND 4? "That's just Texas. It's been like that since the first lap we ran here in 1996. Turn 2 and Turn 4 are very flat and you lose the front end a lot. Track position is going to be key tomorrow. You pick up a little bit of aero push with these new cars. Track position and clean air are all the things that you can use to your advantage."

DO YOU HAVE A PREDICTION FOR TONIGHT'S NORTH CAROLINA/KANSAS GAME? "We better win I can tell you that! We're going to the game to cheer the boys on; its game day and I'm excited. I would love to see Roy (Williams) go back and beat Kansas. That would make my day for sure."

SAM HORNISH Jr. (No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger) "I thought we had a good practice. We just tried to find the right balance in the car -- especially in corner entry. Turns 2 and 4 are critical here because they are so flat. It's a long race tomorrow. We're just going to try and stay patient and work our Mobil 1 Dodge up to the front."

WITH ALL YOUR SUCCESS IN AN INDY CAR HERE, HOW BIG A DIFFERNCE IS IT RACING AT TMS IN A CUP CAR? "Everything is different. The only thing good about having been here before is having the success that I did. It gives you the confidence that 'I can win here'. It's almost better to go to a place where you've never raced open-wheel before so you don't have any habits of what you would do in an Indy car. I've been in a Cup car long enough now that I don't think that I have to worry about that here."
