Elliott Sadler on the Twin 125's:
"Qualifying day reflects a lot on the motor and the body - the driver needs to drive as fast as he can and keep control of the car. When we are racing in the 125's it will be important for the 50 laps to keep the car in the lead draft. I'll also rely on some teammate assistance in the draft and hopefully DJ and I will hook up and lead the pack.
Crew Chief Raymond Fox III on the Twin 125's:
"My strategy is just to race hard and stay with the leaders. We all need to pit so the call to make that happen may or may not be on my shoulders. If there is a caution within the first couple laps we will see everyone come in for the pit stop. It will be important that the No. 38 team makes a flawless pit stop and gives Elliott some good track position. If not he will have to draft his way back to the front and the chances of getting caught up in something is greater. Our plan is to be as mistake free as possible and be there at the end."
Spotter Brett Griffin on the Twin 125's:
"Spotting the 125-qualifying race is a lot different than spotting the Daytona 500. That race is shorter and there are only about half the amount of cars on the track so the packs are smaller. After the first pit stop the cars will probably spread out into several smaller packs. Our goal is to make it through the 125 with a strong finish, which will solidify a good starting spot for the Daytona 500."
