Top Speed: 205.0 mph Laps: 11 Weather: Windy W/Scattered Showers

"We did not want to run with the winds as high as they were today. If we are going to be on the track, we want to make sure that we are running quality laps that are going to help us in qualifying and the race. We did not feel that we would gain enough on the track to chance running in the high winds, so we came in after 11 laps. We waited throughout the day to see if the winds died down, but they didn't so we did not go back out." -Rick Galles
