JOE NEMECHEK, NO. 25 UAW/DELPHI CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO:

"It was a good lap. We unloaded really quick off the truck. We made quite a few changes today. We made a lot of runs. Every change we made, it seemed to make the car faster. The car was very repeatable. The car drove the same in my qualifying lap. My first lap was my fast lap and the second one I didn't drive it quite hard enough to go any faster. But, that is one of those things you do here. If you drive it too hard sometimes you go a lot slower.

"It's a good day for our whole UAW/Delphi team. It's a good starting spot. If that thing drives that good in the race we're going to be good there, too."

WHY WAS YOUR FIRST LAP FASTER THAN YOUR SECOND? "That was me. I didn't take advantage of my second lap like I should have. And, it was almost the same time and I knew it. After you don't do it you know it real quick. That's just part of it."
