"We were more than just a little disappointed with not making the race in Bristol. So we're going to regroup and not let that happen again. I couldn't have felt worse with how close we were (.001 seconds). But it was better to know we were really close than not even in the ballpark. At the end of the day, we should've been in.

"Fontana is a pretty tricky place. It's gotten rougher and slicker as the years have gone on. The track has seams that they put sealer on, and it it makes the track slick. So, it's a tough track. We just have to unload as good as we can and get it in the show this time."

JUST THE FACTS: Sunday's race would be Reutimann's first Sprint Cup start in 2014 ... He has 11 Cup career starts at Auto Club Speedway... His best finish at the track is ninth (2008).
