Bobby Hamilton said, "The track's new configuration is like an old Atlanta Motor Speedway. It's fast, but that's not a huge change from the other times we've been here. I like that way the track drives now. They did a great job making all these changes and putting this place back so smoothly. We've had some extra time today to work on our qualifying and race runs, so I see us being pretty strong in the race Friday."

Chad Chaffin said, "It's hard for us to say right now what we think about the track because our truck is pushing really bad. We just need more time to figure out what we need to do. Bobby (Hamilton) is very fast and I jumped in his truck to see the difference. It helped us a little on our setup and he coached me on how to drive around this place. We've had some strong races this year on tracks like this one, so I see us picking up by the afternoon. The track looks and feels great. It's very smooth."

Bill Lester tapped the wall in turns one and two in the first few laps of practice. He said, "I tried to turn the truck and it kept going straight on me. I tapped the wall, but it was just cosmetic damage. It wasn't that bad; I was nursing the brakes and so it was slowed down. We've made a few laps since then, but are still working on it."
