New Hampshire Practice Quotes

JACK SPRAGUE, NO 16 CHEVY TRUCKS SILVERADO, 3TH IN FIRST PRACTICE; 21st IN SECOND PRACTICE:

"We only did one qualifying run to make sure we were ok there and then spent the rest of practice working on race setup, trying things to see how our Chevy Trucks Silverado reacted to the changes. From looking at the weather, we are going to be racing in weather pretty similar to what we practiced in today, if the weather cooperates, so we wanted to make as many chances as possible to know where we are with the adjustability of the truck. We have a good truck, it drives well so I think we will qualify pretty close to the front and then have a good run in the race."

DENNIS SETZER, NO 46 CHEVROLET SILVERADO, 11TH IN FIRST PRACTICE; 4TH IN SECOND PRACTICE:

"Our Chevrolet Silverado is pretty good. We focused mostly on race setup so we could see how the truck responded. We are happy with what we came up with there near the end of practice and will be ready to go for tomorrow's race. We know we need to race hard, race to win and get strong finishes, that is what we came to New Hampshire to do. I am just hoping we do get our race in and the rain doesn't interfere."

DAVID STARR, NO. 75 SPEARS MANUFACTURING SILVERADO, 19TH IN FIRST PRACTICE; 14TH IN SECOND PRACTICE:

"The Spears Chevy Silverado is good. I feel like we will have a pretty strong qualifying run like we did last week in Richmond and then have good adjustability for the race. Dave McCarty (crew chief) and the guys are going to make some changes that will even make us better. We could run good laps, there are a few guys that are really good then we are in the next group. I think we will have a really good race tomorrow; I am looking forward to it. We just need Mother Nature to cooperate."

RON HORNADAY, NO. 6 GM GOODWRENCH SILVERADO, 14TH IN FIRST PRACTICE; 16TH IN SECOND PRACTICE:

"I am pretty happy with the way the GM Goodwrench truck feels, I am just not sure what everyone else has. I think we should be just fine when it is time to race. Our lap times were consistent and I think that will pay off when we are up against everyone else. Right now I just hope it doesn't rain and we are able to get the race in tomorrow."

ARIC ALMIROLA, NO. 47 FEDEX KINKO'S CHEVROLET SILVERADO; 17TH IN FIRST PRACTICE; 10TH IN SECOND PRACTICE:

"We are pretty good in qualifying trim. We were just a little tight in race trim but I know Randy Goss (crew chief) and these guys are going to work on this truck. We have the rest of today and tomorrow morning to think about what we need to do, time to stew and come up with something. I think we will be good. I am excited, this is the first time I have ever been here. It took me a little while to get used to the track. After I got used to the track, I was able to help Goss a lot more on trying to adjust our Silverado. I thought there would be something I could use that I learned from IRP (Indianapolis Raceway Park, finished 10th, his last NCTS race) coming into here. The corners here are just so much wider. The only thing that is really similar is your are running on the top. It seems like some of the faster guys can stay down low but I need to be on the top. At IRP I needed to run low. So there isn't really anything very similar at all about the two tracks,

KYLE BUSCH, NO. 15 ditech.com SILVERADO, 3RD IN FIRST PRACTICE; 26TH IN SECOND PRACTICE:

"We have an awesome truck here for New Hampshire. We were third in the first practice with the ditech.com Silverado and it was real, real good in Happy Hour. We called it a day about 20 minutes early, that is how good we are. Ritche (Wauters) and the guys had it hooked up. We didn't run so well last weekend in Richmond and that's pretty fresh in our minds, so every one of these guys worked hard this week in preparing this truck. I have never raced a truck here at New Hampshire but we sure would like to find Victory Lane again."
