Kyle Busch, No. 51 Land Liquidators/B&G General Store/Peavey Electronics Silverado, 2nd in final practice:
"We have a completely different truck than what he had here last year, it is very fast, the same truck we ran at Charlotte this year. Our favorite truck isn't quite fixed yet, but this one looks like it is going to be our new second favorite truck. We are happy with it, was very quick in practice. We made a lot of changes to it and everything seemed to react the right way. I believe we have a very good piece here that hopefully we can qualify up front and race up front and win the race.
"We need the weather to hold off and have a strong, solid qualifying run where we don't need to use a provisional. Because when you use a provisional, it usually means a backup truck. We don't need to do that; we have a very good piece here. If we can qualify somewhere in the top-10, that will be fine with me because I am confident in this truck that it will drive pretty good in the race and we will be able to pass some guys.
"It seemed like we were a little bit tight behind some trucks when I was following them, but they seemed to fall of worse than we did so hopefully we can keep that going.
"It definitely helped me out with the track learning what I did in the truck race. It really helped me set myself up for the Busch and Cup race. Since we aren't going for points here, we are just kind of going all out and trying to get the win of course, but we want to make sure we take a truck back to the shop in one piece. This track changes every time you go out there, it is definitely good to race every division when you are here to keep up on the changes and what the track is doing."
Dennis Setzer, No. 85 E85 FlexFuel Silverado, 11th in final practice: "
We struggled. We're hunting for some grip or something in the center of the corner, and we are tight on exit. I don't know, we came with something and it seems like we can't get it fixed. I just think that we haven't found what we are looking for yet, but I think our Silverado will be alright for the race tomorrow."
Mike Bliss, No. 16 IWX/Xpress Motorsports Silverado, 4th in final practice:
" "It is tough, because we were one of the first ones on the track, and this track always tightens up, so you want to be good, but loose. We got the truck where it was real tight when we started, and then we got it real loose. We feel like we can find a happy medium with this IWX Motor Freight Silverado."
Kyle Krisiloff, No. 15 Billy Ballew Motorsports Silverado, 14th in final practice:
"This is definitely a tricky track. It took a while to get the hang of it. I had to deal with a lot of traffic. My second mock qualifying lap was messed up because I ran up on a slower truck. We chased the truck for a bit after we ran into a set of tires that weren't working for us. After we got new tires on, I learned how to really get around. We're not bad, there's still a little bit left in there."
Kraig Kinser, No. 46 CENTRIX Auto Finance Silverado, 6th in final practice:
"We just got a bit better and better, we got so many lap on our tires, we struggled with getting the handle for the race runs. We worked on qualifying runs there at the end, and was pretty happy with the laps that we ran. We did a lot of race runs today, and I think we have a pretty good truck."
