BRENDAN GAUGHAN, NO 77 SOUTH POINT HOTEL/GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY SILVERADO:

"I think we have a top-five Silverado. We have been top-10 practice all day long, both sessions. If we hadn't had a left front flat on our qualifying run and got real loose in three and four, we would probably be sixth or seventh because we would have been at least a tenth faster. I think we have a top-10 qualifying truck and a top-10 race Silverado."

CLINT BOWYER, NO. 2 CAMPING WORLD SILVERADO:

"I think our Silverado is pretty good out there. There are about three of us Chevys that are pretty good so we just have to get those others ones kicked back and we will be fine,

"I just need to keep plenty of water in my and hydrated well to run all three races this weekend. It is the same for everybody. I have been given a good opportunity here in Kevin and DeLana's (Harvick) truck and we came to make the best of it. Heat is just part of it. We will be fine."

KYLE BUSCH, NO 51 FLANDERS BEEF PATTIES SILVERADO:

"I doubt that we have a shot at the pole but we will give it a shot and see what we can do. Our Silverado is pretty good right now. We will just keep working on what we can. I feel like we have a pretty good race truck. We will just have to see how it goes.

"We had a bum break there last year with the hood pin deal. It wasn't anybody's doing, just bad luck. We feel like we can get back out there tomorrow and do what we have done the previous two years and run strong.

"I am in pretty good shape but it is still going to be a tough weekend. I am not running the triple which would be even tougher. Running the Truck race last year, it was definitely hot out there, I burned the bottom of my feet a little bit. But I was able to rest up for Sunday. Hopefully we will be able to do the same thing this year not running the Busch race.

"We came here with both Billy Ballew trucks about the same. He unloaded off the truck just right behind us there. We made some changes, a few shock changes and felt like we made some gains. The information is going right over to the No. 15 hopefully they can make the gains we have."

BILL LESTER, NO. 15 CHRISTIAN DEBT CONSOLIDATION SILVERADO:

"We're really excited! The No. 15 Silverado unloaded well and it showed in both practices. We just had some minor tweaks to the truck to get it into the corners a little bit but honestly other then that we are good to go. We were a little bit free on the track but the last thing we want is to dial the truck out and have it be too tight in the race after all the rubber from the Busch and Cup cars tomorrow. Kyle's truck unloaded fast as well and both trucks were set up the same to come here and pretty much set-up the same for qualifying and the race too. I'm really optimistic about both qualifying and the race after having such a good run during practice."
