David Ragan, driver of the No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion, and Bill Elliott, driver of the Quick Lane Ford Fusion, both turned in top-10 speeds during Happy Hour at Michigan on Saturday. Elliott leads all active drivers with seven career wins at MIS, and he says fast on Saturday and fast on Sunday are two different things.

DAVID RAGAN -- No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion (3rd fastest)

DOES A DAY LIKE TODAY MAKING SLEEPING ON SATURDAY NIGHT A LITTLE EASIER? "Well, it depends on how the Nationwide race today goes. But, yeah, our UPS Ford is fast, and certainly when we've got good speed we can make a few small adjustments. I think we've got a good top-10 car right now. Certainly, we've got to pass a lot of cars tomorrow to get to the front, but it's always good to have a car that's got good speed that we can just fine-tune on on Saturday."

BILL ELLIOTT -- No. 21 Quick Lane Ford Fusion (7th fastest)

ON BEING SEVENTH FASTEST IN HAPPY HOUR. "That doesn't mean a thing. It's all about 400 miles tomorrow."

OVER THE YEARS, HAS THIS TRACK CHANGED, OR HAS YOUR APPROACH TO THIS TRACK CHANGED? "Cars change, tires change, tracks change -- then you've got to change."
