KEVIN HARVICK, NO. 29 GM GOODWRENCH CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO:
"We usually qualify terrible here and then race really good. We worked on our race runs trying to make sure if it rains tomorrow we'll have what we need. We just made one qualifying run and that might get us in the top 15. The Busch car is good too. I really thought that lap was better than it was. The car handled really good. So we're right where we need to be.
ON TESTING IN TEXAS:
"We had a really good test in Texas. We tried a lot of new stuff. It worked really good. We're excited to go back after having a good test. It was a good couple of days for us and we learned a lot of stuff. The tires for Texas are probably a little less than they are at other places just because the speed is up so high and it doesn't seem like the tires fall off as much as they do at other places. We didn't have to adjust a bunch, but we were able to try a lot of new things we've wanted to try for a while and they all work. So we're excited."
MICHAEL WALTRIP, NO. 15 NAPA CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO:
"I think I could have gotten the pole. We haven't really struggled for performance. We've just struggled for results. But it's really no big deal. We expect to qualify in the top 10 and so we'd be disappointed if we didn't."
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DUPONT CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO - qualified 2nd:
"It was a heck of a lap for us. We got everything we could out of it. We may have tightened it up just a little bit too much. But I knew Ryan (Newman) put a good number up and I'm just happy to have a Chevy in the top five right now and have a front row starting position and get a good spot on pit road.
