KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Operation Home Front/Miller Lite Dodge Charger) Qualified 9th
"We'll take it with the Operation Home Front /Miller Lite Dodge. We made an adjustment on the car for qualifying and it ran the same speed as I did in practice, but it felt more comfortable. That's what we need to do, find more comfort and speed in the race car when it comes time to race on Sunday. We were real tight in race trim and ended up really loose. We'll just shoot for the middle and see what happens."
SAM HORNISH JR (No. 77 AAA Dodge Charger) Qualified 18th
"Not the qualifying draw (first) that we were looking for today. This track seems to cool down so fast that guys who have the chance to go out late seem to pick up a lot. It wasn't a terrible lap for when we had to qualify. Our AAA Dodge is pretty good. The track was just a little bit off from what we thought it would be like. Our car was pretty good in race runs. I love coming out here to Kansas. This place is one of my favorite places to race."
WHERE HAS THE NO. 77 AAA DODGE BEEN GOOD TODAY? "We have been pretty good in and off the corners. We've been just a little too tight in the center of the corners. It's just too bad that we didn't get more speed out of the race car. That's just because we qualified first and we didn't quite know what the track was going to do. There's definitely more speed in the car."
BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger) Qualified 26th
"We just seem to be off a bit in the Penske Dodge today. I over drove (turns) 3 & 4 a little bit and we were just a bit off in 1 & 2. I needed to hit a real good corner there. We just need to keep working on it. This is a pretty basic track compared to Kentucky or California or Texas. It's like all those tracks, just simpler."
