JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 42 TARGET CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 3RD:

ON THE QUALIFYING EFFORT:

"It was really good. I was surprised that the track didn't seem that quick that early. Nobody seemed to run well that early. As the action went on, it got a little bit better that was kind of surprising. It was a good lap. It was a really clean lap. I think there was a little bit more out there, but with one lap only, you're better off trying to get a clean lap than what Carl (Edwards) did. Carl did great, he nailed it up, got 100 percent out of the lap and it paid off. The same way, you miss the bus stop or something, it will kill you. That was a good lap."

WAS YOUR CAR BETTER THAN IT WAS AT SONOMA?:

"I think they are completely different race tracks from my point of view. We always suck in Sonoma and we run good here. If we improve it to go back to Sonoma, then great. We did a VIR (Virginia International Raceway) test and we were really competitive. We did a lot of testing and in the beginning we thought we were really bad and we made it a lot better. By the time we got to Sonoma, we still sucked. We come here, we pretty much run what we run and I don't know exactly what we're running, but it's good, I guess."
