ANDREW BORDIN #1 WORLDCOM/PPIM/SWIFT
Qualified: 1st 1.07.323 **New Track Record
"The car is great. Unfortunately, I got on my brakes a little hard and they were really hot, and I lost it. So I was only able to finish ten laps. To have achieved the pole that early in the session was pretty good. I am especially pleased since it is our last race. This is it for PPI's Atlantic program, so I would like to do very well for Cal Wells (team owner), Nick (Harvey - team manager), for Kyle (Brannan - engineer), and for Michael (Harvey - crew chief), and the guys on the team. They have all dedicated so much to this program and to Dan and I. We really owe them only the best."

"The car is much better today than it was yesterday. Unfortunately, I am not finding the speed I need to run in the front. I am disappointed with this qualifying result, but I am feeling optimistic for tomorrow."
