Watkins Glen Friday practice quotes

Boris Said - ...

Boris Said - #23 Federated Auto Parts Ford - (Fastest in practice) - We brought it back the same way we tested and we were a little tight. But, I think that's because the rain washed a lot of the rubber away. I'm just happy to get out and run a few laps after sitting around all day. I'm lucky; I don't need that much practice here.

Jeff Gordon - #24 Dupont Chevrolet - (2nd Fastest in practice) - The car feels good. It's really hard to tell because we haven't made enough laps to figure anything out. I only got 2 laps in. Hopefully we will be able to find more out tomorrow.

Brett Bodine - #11 Ralph's Supermarkets Ford - (3rd fastest in practice) - We feel good about tomorrow. The car is handling good. We are not where we want to be. I know there is more in the car; its not like this was all we have. The car is performing good and we got some things we'd like to try to improve the car. We did make a gear change and it really helped us out.

Bobby Labonte - #18 Interstate Batteries Pontiac - (18th fastest in practice) - I didn't get many laps in practice, too much stuff going on with traffic and red flags.

Dave Blaney - #93 Amoco Pontiac - (Crashed in practice) - We spun out. I don't know if there was water or the track was slippery from any other liquid; I don't think there was anything on track. I just got in the inner loop and it just got away from me. It will take a few minutes to repair the damage; it's just a bit of sheet metal damage.
