Fontana: Dodge teams in-race quotes

KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger)

ON THE RACE SO FAR: "Each lap you learn something new. I'm not sure it we've got the car to go and win the race, so we are going to go and make adjustments on it through the night. Who knew we were going to be racing at night so the track is going to cool off. The front tires are going to turn really good and so we just have to make sure that we hook up the back end of the Miller Lite Dodge. We're just contemplating what we want to do. We're not sure what we're going to do."

ROBBY GORDON (No. 7 Jim Beam Dodge Charger)

ON THE RACE SO FAR: "We're working really hard on our Car of Tomorrow program. I think the engines are pretty good, so we've been able to pass some guys and move toward the front and into the top-20. We're going to make some adjustments on our car. We ran through a lot of debris and it doesn't look like we've hurt anything. We'll come down right before we go back green and make one more adjustment. Our car tightened up a little bit and then loosing up a little bit later on tonight."

IS IT DIFFICULT TO FIND YOUR JUDGEMENT POINTS ON THE RACE TRACK? "What I was talking about was more of the wreck when the No. 5 and No. 88 got together we ran over a bunch of metal and some other stuff, so we're going to come in and take four tires just to be safe and make one adjustment just to tighten up a little bit."

SAM HORNISH, JR. (No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger)

WITH THE SEEPAGE ON THE TRACK, WAS THE TRACK READY TO GO RACING? There's a lot of weepers in-between the first and second groove. We could have had the jet dryers run until tomorrow and still maybe not get the track dry - and that's if it doesn't rain anymore. I think that NASCAR made the decision that they thought was the best. You had to pick your line going into the corner - you couldn't cross that section. It maybe wasn't the best situation to go racing - but as the cars ran - it was going to get better and better."
