KYLE PETTY (No. 45 Wells Fargo Dodge Charger)

ARE HAPPY HOUR TIMES AN INDICATOR OF HOW GOOD YOUR CAR IS? "Our car is a lot better than it was all week long. Our guys worked really, really hard. The Evernham Engines are a lot better here than what we had in the 150s. We struggled there. It's an indicator that our guys are still pumped up even after a bad week, so this is a great way to end it. But, is this an indicator of how you are going to do in the race? Not by any stretch of the imagination. I think it's that way at Daytona and Talladega also."

WERE THINGS CALMED DOWN IN THIS HAPPY HOUR? "I think they were. Everybody dreads the last happy hour. You just want to get out of here with your car. You want to get to the (Daytona) 500 tomorrow with the car that you've spent the last 12 or 14 days working on. I think that's the biggest issue. Everybody was pretty calm and it'll be a good race tomorrow."
