Shane Hmiel pre-race quotes:

"I'm just excited that Bill Davis, one of the top organizations in racing, is giving me the opportunity to run a Cup race. It feels really good. Not taking anything away from my truck team because those guys are the best. It sure will be a lot of fun to try to make the Cup race. This is only my second attempt to qualify for a Cup race. My first attempt was last year in the Pepsi 400 at Daytona, for the Petty's".

"It is going to be neat going to California for the second Cup event held there this season. It will be cool for the fans that NASCAR comes to as good of a track as California is - twice. It will be neat to see the strategies of the teams since it starts during the day and finishes under the lights. So you're going to see someone that is good during the day then bad at night. Some will be bad during the day and good at night. There is going to be a lot of passing, not a whole bunch of dominating during the race I wouldn't think."

"I like racing the bigger tracks like California. I run well at them. I would just like to go out there, start the race, stay out of trouble and run in the top 20. I'll be pretty happy with that."
