BRIAN VICKERS, No. 10 Fort McDowell Resort Destination Toyota Camry, Braun Racing: Starting position: 9th

How was your qualifying run? "We were loose and had a lot of down force. I'm glad it's a top-10 start. But, we were really, really loose -- extremely loose. That's how you have to be at the race track, that's how we have to be to be in good race trim. We'll see what happens."

How does the Busch car different from the Cup car? "They aren't that different, they are similar cars. There are definitely some differences; the Busch car has a lot less power and more down force. You definitely drive them different. Braun Ra cing has done a good job, especially with these bigger tracks, Toyota has a great package and having Fort McDowell Resorts on the car definitely helps."

How do the impound races affect how you approach qualifying and racing tomorrow evening? "Impound races always present a struggle in qualifying -- you just find a good race set-up and just cross your fingers to how good you do in qualifying. You make all the changes you can to tighten up and hope for the best. Our main concern is the race tomorrow and I think we'll be pretty good."

DAVID REUTIMANN, No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry, Michael Waltrip Racing: Starting position: 13th

How was your qualifying run? "It was okay. It was a lot better than what we did in practice. Jerry Baxter (crew chief) and the guys did a really great job and my Toyota horsepower never hurts any. We weren't even close to that in practice, so I'm pretty happy with that. Hopefully that will hold on for a top-10 and give us a chance for a good pit position."

How does the heat affect you? "It's hot. The heat does bother you, but what are you going to do?"

JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing: Starting position: 23rd

How was your qualifying run? "We didn't qualify as well as we wanted to. The guys have been fighting the car all day. Our Camry has been running strong the last few races and we'll go get them tomorrow."
