JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DUPONT IMPALA SS, QUALIFIED 3RD:

"It was a pretty good day for us, I just got a little free there qualifying on the second lap, so we just weren't able to put down the lap we were hoping for, but all in all a good day."

ON HIS THOUGHTS OF HOW IMPORTANT STARTING POSITION WILL BE ON SUNDAY WITH CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE:

"Track position, we found the last time qualifying on the pole was important, also the pit you get on pit road is important. I am happy that we are third, I would rather have been first, but I am really glad we aren't 10th or 15th or further on back. With this car at this race track, it just seems to me that unless you have really found something good, it is hard to come up through the field."
