Fontana: Dodge teams qualifying quotes

BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger) 13th "The Discount Tire Dodge wasn't too bad. The track surprised me a bit. I thought that there would be a touch more grip. We were just a touch tight and will probably need to loosen it up.

HAS THE TRACK CHANGED FROM YESTERDAY? "For sure. It washed all the rubber away and the track lost a lot of grip. That's OK. The sun is coming out and will slow down the cars a touch. I like our race car. It's fast and I know that we're going to have a great car for the race."

JUSTIN ALLGAIER (No 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger) Qualified 15th "We were OK in qualifying. We worked really hard on our race setup in practice. We made one qualifying run yesterday that left a lot to be desired. Today, we found a lot on our Verizon Wireless Dodge. The car felt really good, maybe just a little on the free side. All and all, a good start to the day for our 12 team. We're looking forward to the race. I feel like the Dodge engine will have strong fuel mileage. If we can play the fuel strategy the right way and stay out if trouble on the race track, I think we'll be really good for the race."

PARKER KLIGERMAN (No. 42 Smith Ironworks Dodge Charger) 29th "I think the biggest thing for the qualifying session was that we dodged the rain and actually go to run on the track and try to make the show. Today reminded me of our qualifying run at Homestead last year. I struggled a bit in the second practice session and didn't exactly know what we had with the car. I think Chris (Carrier) made some amazing changes to the car that really helped. We picked up a lot in qualifying and I think it will be enough to get us in the show. We have a great race car. We're just a little bit loose which should help us in race trim."
