SCOTT RIGGS, NO. 10 VALVOLINE CHEVROLET

"All the guys at the shop did a great job. We brought two new Valvoline Chevrolets here and both cars are pretty close in speed. This is good for us because we're getting a pretty good feel to where we need to be. Hopefully the wind will stay a little calm today and we'll get a better direction to improve the performance. The team continues to get better and better -- not only with the cars but the Hendrick horsepower under the hood. We seem to get better every time we come to a restrictor-plate race and hopefully that will be the case next month. So far we're doing what we need to do. It feels good to be good off the truck because if you aren't there's not a lot you can do. So being strong at the get go and positioned at the top of the chart makes us all feel pretty good right now."

JOE NEMECHEK, NO. 01 U.S. ARMY CHEVROLET

"We're trying to figure out what's wrong with the new car -- both cars should be the same. We found a couple of little problems with it and we're gaining on it. Overall, from what Boris (Said) did here last week and how the (No.) 10 cars are running along with one of mine, it shows a lot of promise for the team. We did expect to be strong here. The Army Chevy that is running strong here is the same car I sat on the pole with at Talladega. We just need to get the other car going."
