On his qualifying effort... "Yesterday was just one of those days when we had a lot things that hindered us from getting a lot of track time. We worked on the data and looked at what Paul did. But we pieced together a pretty good lap today. We actually had two or three potentially good laps but traffic was a major factor. We made a couple of mistakes but still pulled off a good time.

"It's a good race car. It feels good like I could drive it with one hand. I know what it's going to do for the race. I think it's going to be a very nice race between the top five or six cars tomorrow."
