BOBBY LABONTE (No. 43 Cheerios/Betty Crocker Dodge Charger) 2nd

"After the rain delay, the track had cooled off so that helped us out. We were the sixth car on the racetrack after that -- 19th fastest in practice earlier -- we made three or four qualifying runs and never ran faster then half a tenth. We made a couple more changes and bolted a couple things on there that we thought we'd try.

"We left one thing on there and moved a 'little bit of that' -- it was just a good lap. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't think it was going to be that fast with the track conditions what they were, so we're excited to get a good lap in a get a good starting spot."
