RON HORNADAY, NO. 6 GM GOODWRENCH SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 3RD: "I enjoy this race track. For some reason I like the concrete, it has always been good to me. We have run really well here, we don't have a win yet but we have a great opportunity...

RON HORNADAY, NO. 6 GM GOODWRENCH SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 3RD:

"I enjoy this race track. For some reason I like the concrete, it has always been good to me. We have run really well here, we don't have a win yet but we have a great opportunity with our GM Goodwrench Silverado tomorrow. Wally (Rogers, crew chief) and the guys put something good underneath me right off the trailer. We ran faster than I thought we were going to in qualifying. Then we helped David Starr in our Chevrolet Team Silverado meeting and teamwork pays off because he picked it up and got the pole away from us! (Chuckles) I don't think it was the truck, I think it was him, he was scared! But seriously, it was a good run for us and I am excited about the race tomorrow."

KYLE BUSCH, NO. 15 ditech.com SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 5TH:

"We had a pretty good lap, we were just a little loose in which kind of made me a little timid getting back in the gas. We didn't want to hurt the ditech.com Silverado. We just wanted to make sure we had a good starting spot. We wanted to get in the top eight and we got that done so we will be able to go get them in the race. I am looking forward to it because we should have a good truck for the race.

On Enjoying Racing in NCTS: "I am really enjoying racing in the Truck Series. I just like going out and having fun and racing with these guys. I wish we could have gotten the pole but we have another one scheduled for Michigan so we will try for one there. We want to try and figure out a few more."

TONY STEWART, NO 47 CHEVROLET MAKITA SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 11th:

"I am pretty happy. We went in to qualifying with the attitude to take the set one tires that we had, do the work on them and then qualify on them. That way we would have three sets of stickers left so that is what we have done. As we are talking we are 10th right now, it drove pretty good. and we ran our best laps on tires that had nine or ten laps on them. We are pretty excited about how it is running and hopefully our tire strategy will play out and work for us. We are in a good position for it to work for us so we are pretty excited."

JACK SPRAGUE, NO 16 CHEVY TRUCKS SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 12TH:

"Chris (Showalter, crew chief) and the crew have given me a good Chevy Trucks Silverado to race and this isn't a bad place to start here at Dover. We would have liked to been a little closer to the front but we will have a good race tomorrow. This is one on my favorite tracks so I am really looking forward to the green flag. This whole team is ready to win a race."

DENNIS SETZER, NO 46 CHEVROLET SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 27TH:

"Today has been one of those challenging days for our Silverado team. We have been searching all day for the right combination. I know Eric (Phillips, crew chief) and the guys will have a good race strategy so we will just focus on working our way to the front during tomorrow's race."

KELLY SUTTON, NO 02 TEAM COPAXONE SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 23RD:

"This Chevy Silverado was definitely the right truck today. I was feeling it out during practice, and trying a few different lines until we found what worked best. The truck feels awesome. Track position is really important here at Dover, and so is avoiding the couple early wrecks, which are bound to happen. I think we'll be in a good spot for tomorrow's race. I'd like to thank my team for another good truck, and for the hard work at the shop and here on-site. Hopefully with another strong finish here in Dover, we can attract some associate sponsors for Sutton Motorsports, to help us grow even stronger. "

Kelly on setting career earnings mark for a female NCTS driver: "I think it's pretty neat, but I'm keeping my focus on bringing home better and better finishes for this Chevy Silverado. When I put my helmet on, I'm a driver just like everyone else, but if I'm going to get some attention as a female driver, I guess I'd rather it be for a top-ten, a pole, or even better, a win! We definitely had the right truck at the last race in Charlotte, and we're all working hard to build on that momentum."
