Herta on the day:
"It is unbelievable going into those corners, they are like a big bowl and you are looking straight at it..it's fast and it's fun . I am real, real happy with the car, it's very comfortable. The guys have done a great job getting us ready for this place. It's great to start the weekend at a track like this in the top five."
Tony Brunetti, General Manager:
"We are very happy with our progress today. It is good to see Bryan back on a super speedway and he is doing a great job getting back up to speed. It's hard to tell where we will qualify, it will be based on who can do a quick time without the tow, and I am confident we can do that. We also worked on our race set-up today - we think we have a good, consistent car for the race."
