JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, N0. 42 TARGET CHEVROLET -- Qualified 3rd:

FAST LAP OUT THERE TONIGHT

"Yeah, it's actually crazy how fast it is. It's nice to see and it's always a lot of fun when it's that fast. I was surprised we ran that fast because everybody around us seemed to be fast in the afternoon practice but they were not fast in qualifying. So I was pretty happy. It was good. Actually this is the first week in a long time that we came off the truck and the car is actually pretty average."

THERE WAS A LOT WRITTEN LAST SUNDAY ABOUT YOU AND JAMIE MCMURRAY. IS EVERYTHING GOOD?

"Yeah. I went home. He sent me a text saying la-la-la-la-la and he was sorry and the whole thing and I said don't worry about it. He asked if I wanted him to call me and I said don't worry about it. It happens. It's racing. Move on. Really, I was really pissed at the time because we had a DNF the week before with an engine problem. And this week being taken out by your teammate is something that you don't really expect but it happens. It's part of racing and move on."
