ELLIOTT SADLER (No. 19 Stanley Tools Dodge Charger) Qualified 3rd

HOW WAS YOUR LAP?

"It was a great lap for our Stanley Dodge. I left a lot on the table. I screwed up pretty bad in Turns 1 and 2. My guys did a great job and gave me a great racecar. I've been fast all day. We're racing for one million bucks this weekend, so to start up front is a great sign of how Sunday may shape up. It's a great racecar, the same car we had at Indy. It's just in the race track and responds well. I think we have a really good piece for Sunday. The hotter and slicker it (the track) gets, the better we'll get."

WHAT HAPPENED IN TURNS 1 AND 2?

"I just over drove it a bit. I was just trying to go too fast. That's Ok. We've got 400 miles to run good and try to get Stanley Tools and Ace Hardware to donate $1 million."

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE $1 MILLION INCENTIVE YOU HAVE THIS WEEKEND?

"Stanley Tools, along with Ace Hardware Foundation, are donating $1 million to the Children's Miracle Network if we're able to win the race this weekend. It's an unbelievable incentive. We went to the Sparrow Hospital in Lansing (Michigan) yesterday and met some amazing kids who gave us that much more incentive to win the race."
