Andrew Ranger: # 27 Mi-Jack/Tide - Mi-Jack Conquest Racing
"For qualifying I lost a lot of time in the pits, because we had to work on the car that was a bit loose. Finally, I got in the track, did a couple laps -- but it was taking a lot of time to get the tires proper pressure. Then on my last lap I touched the wall tires with the car rear wing and it damage a little -- so the time was not that good. But I told my engineer that I'm happy with the car and we only used one set of tires."

Nelson Philippe -- # 34 Wellbox - Mi-Jack Conquest Racing
"For qualifying we used only our red set of tires to save for tomorrow, almost everybody used two sets. We only went out at the end; high temperatures have made it tough. The car is not bad, but I'm still struggling a bit because is still loose. Everyone at our team is pushing hard to get further improvements on the car. We have to keep working on that for tomorrow. But overall I am happy with the car and looking forward to qualifying tomorrow. My foot still hurts a little but I can manage that. "

TV Broadcast: CBS, Sunday, June 26 live, coverage starting at 1:30 PM (ET)
