BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger) Qualified 1st

"That was an awesome lap for the Discount Tire Dodge Challenger. The Dodge Challenger is a beautiful car and it will look even better running up front. It wasn't an easy lap that's for sure. I had my hands full but Paul (Wolfe, crew chief) gave me a great race car. This Dodge Challenger is fast. We were good in race trim during practice and I think if the weather stays cool that we should be good later today. It means a lot to get a pole here at my home track. To get a win would be even better."

WHAT KIND OF RACING DO YOU EXPECT TODAY? "I think that there is going to be a lot of drafting. I wouldn't be surprised to see a last-lap pass for the win. This track is so big and fast that those last final laps are going to be really exciting. We just need to get in that right position late in the race to give ourselves a shot at the win."

JUSTIN ALLGAIER (No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Challenger) Qualified 7th

"That's a great qualifying run for the Verizon Wireless Dodge Challenger. Unfortunately, I just gave up too much in qualifying. This new Dodge Challenger has been awesome all weekend. We really didn't know what to expect when we unloaded, but the good news is that we unloaded a fast Dodge. The provisional pole is cool. I'm just not sure that it's going to hold up. We feel like we have a great Dodge Challenger in race trim."

WHAT HAVE YOU GUYS LEARNED SINCE DAYTONA WITH THE NEW CAR? "This new car has a totally different characteristic than anything that we've ever had before. One of the biggest things for us was to hone in on what really makes the car comfortable. We did that at Daytona and that was really beneficial. Having a comfortable car has really helped this weekend. We're a lot closer to where we need to be than we thought and have been able to learn things that will help for the race today."
