ROBBY GORDON - "I'm really disappointed right now. We were fast all day in practice here and looking forward to having a great run to put us in the show. From our last laps in practice to qualifying we made only minor, minor changes, but nothing we felt would upset the car. When I got into turn one and the car compressed, it went loose immediately and I couldn't lay down the power. On the second lap it was worse. The only thing I can think is that we didn't have enough air pressure in the tires for such a short run. But we did test that on our last run before qualifying, the only difference was that we didn't have sticker tires on."

"Fortunately I think we do have enough for tomorrow to show our real colors and put up a solid time. I was very happy with the car all day and I believe we're in the window. Tomorrow morning we'll sort out the tire pressures and make it happen. The setup is good, I'm comfortable in the car. We just didn't anticipate the loose condition on sticker tires. But that's the fine line we walk in first day qualifying. Live and learn, we'll be at it tomorrow."
