Bliss on racing this week at Daytona:

"Our qualifying effort on Saturday wasn't bad and gave us a pretty good starting position for the 150s. Practice will be key and we need to get the car where it drives and handles good and then on Thursday I will drive it like I stole it."

Baldwin on the Daytona 500:

"Well last week didn't go exactly as we wanted but I think we are ok. We are in a brand new car and we are working hard to get it better. We're looking forward to racing Thursday in the 150s and we will keep our fingers crossed that we can make it into the 500. We had to race our way in last year and I am confident we can do the same thing this week."
