TERRY COOK -10-Ford Power Stroke Diesel by Int'l F-150 (Qualified 3rd)

"The Ford Power Stroke Diesel by Int'l truck was good, kinda a little bit like Mike (Skinner) said there. We were bottoming out just a little bit. You work so hard to get this things to travel with the valences sealed right off on the race track and then when you qualify at night the track has a tremendous amount of grip, and you tape up the front very solid and you travel maybe just a little bit more than you did earlier today, so we're dragging the track and throwing sparks. Kinda like Mike, we thought we could have gone a little bit faster if we didn't drag so hard, but we're still very pleased with our effort. We didn't even do a simulated qualifying run practice, so we really didn't know what we had. We were more concentrating on race trim, so I felt like we had a really, really good race truck that surprisingly qualified really, really well, so we're pleased with our effort so far this weekend."

BOBBY EAST -21-State Fair Corn Dogs/Edy's Dibs Ford F-150 (Qualified 4th - Top Rookie)

"It was obviously pretty good, but it's all my team. It's John Monsam and all of the guys; they just do a great job. Here the past couple of months, they've just been giving me really, really good trucks and they've qualified real good and John Monsam always makes them better as the race goes on. We had a decent finish for a rookie on a mile-and-a-half last week, so we're hoping to gain on that this week."
