Bobby East, driver of the No. 09 Zaxby's Ford F-150, was the fastest Ford in first practice, third overall, at O'Reilly Raceway Park. East is bringing momentum to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race after winning the USAC race last night at the same short track. East led all 100 laps during Thursday's USAC race in his Ford Racing/The Car Lot Beast/Ford.

HOW IS YOUR TRUCK TODAY? "We're pretty good, but we're getting tight as we put more laps on the tires, but I'm sure everybody was tightening. We'll just keep working on it. Chad Norris [crew chief] and all these guys on the team did a great job. We always get the most laps out of everybody in each practice and that's mainly because our guys do the changes so fast and get us back out there. I've got to give everybody a lot of credit on this Zaxby's Ford F-150 team."

WHAT IS YOUR CONFIDENCE LEVEL HEADING INTO THE RACE TONIGHT? "I'd say it's mediocre. It's middle of the road. I have a lot of laps here, but maybe not necessarily in the truck. I'm in really good truck, so that helps out quite a bit. I think if we just keep the truck turning, I think we can get a top five or maybe be up there for a podium, or at least a good finish."
