KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Budweiser Dodge Charger) Qualified 2nd

"This team is doing a great job. We had a really good practice. We made a lot of adjustments for qualifying and they really helped. That was a great lap for our Budweiser Dodge. I think it should be a top five, top 10 for sure."

PAT TRYSON (Crew Chief, No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger) Qualified 6th

"It wasn't too bad of a qualifying for our Miller Lite Dodge. We qualified sixth and that should get us a decent pit stall selection and keep us up front on green flag pit stops. We were a little better than where we practiced, hoped to be a little better than that, but still a good qualifying spot for us. It's s a long race tomorrow night. We just want to make sure we go the full 500 miles, go for a win and those valuable bonus points, and see if we can seal the deal for a Chase spot."

ELLIOTT SADLER (No. 19 Stanley Dodge Charger) Qualified 21st

"I'm really happy with my car in race trim. The guys worked hard during the off weekend and brought a great piece to the track. Atlanta has been a good track for us in the past. We want to get all the points that we can, run all 500 miles. We're looking forward to the night race here in Atlanta."

DAVID STREMME (No. 12 Penske Racing Dodge Charger) Qualified 9th

"We unloaded not so great and worked on it in practice. We actually had notes to go off of from the spring and that helped quite a bit. It's been alright, not bad. I think we're pretty good. I got loose into Turn 3 and it cost me a lot of time; I probably had a shot at the pole. I'm just real proud if all my guys, they've done a good job and we'll keep moving forward."

REED SORENSON (No. 43 Air Force Dodge Charger) Qualified 13th

"Our Air Force Dodge was pretty good. We spent a lot of time in race trim during practice and our car was really fast. We didn't think that we were going to get the pole, just trying to get the best lap that we could. We think that we have a pretty good piece for tomorrow night."

SAM HORNISH, JR (No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger) Qualified 30th

"We were just a little bit too tight. Atlanta is become a little bit of a hiccup for us lately. We didn't do too well here in the spring and haven't found the speed we want yet this weekend. We made some gains on it in practice and we'll try and make it right for tomorrow night."
