Kansas Speedway Qualifying Quotes

DENNIS SETZER, NO 46 CHEVROLET Z71 SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 12TH:

"We were a little loose for qualifying but we have a decent starting spot. We would have liked to be a little close to the front but I know we have a good setup to start the race. This Z71 we have is the truck we won in Michigan with so I have a lot of confidence in what the truck can do. Eric (Phillips, crew chief) will have a great race strategy for tomorrow so we will go out and let the track and the race come to us."

JACK SPRAGUE, NO 16 CHEVY TRUCKS SILVERADO. QUALIFIED 5TH:

"Not a bad qualifying effort. It was about what we practiced so we were happy with that. I am really happy with where we are to start the race. We will get a good pit pick so we will see if we can't stay near the front in the first segments of the race and then be there at the end."

RON HORNADAY, NO. 6 GM GOODWRENCH SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 11TH:

"That was 11 spots better than I thought we would do so I can't complain. It was a little unusual running flat-footed laps at a 1.5 mile track, but I will be fine. It looks like all the Chevrolets will be starting near each other so that should make it a lot of fun. We need a good finish this week and with all the points leaders starting together in the pack the fans should really get a good show. I am looking foward to getting in the GM Goodwrench Chevrolet tomorrow and taking it home to victory lane."

DAVID STARR, NO 75 SPEARS MANUFACTURING SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 13TH:

"Not a bad qualifying effort, a lot better than we were earlier in practice. Dave McCarty (crew chief) and the guys and I talked about everything after practice and made some changes. So we qualified better than we practiced. We still blew the nose out on the first lap. I figured we couldn't run wide open on the second lap so I backed off before I got to the center of turns one and two where I lost the nose on the first lap and lost time on the first lap. Second lap was pretty decent. I have the Right Truck so I confidence for the race tomorrow that we will be near the front. I think the changes we made will be the right ones. We've been in a little slump here but the morale on the team is high and we are going to keep fighting.

JOHN ANDRETTI, NO. 15 BILLY BALLEW MOTORSPORTS SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 23RD:

"I think the truck will race pretty good. Like I said, it is still such a learning experience for me that it will take some laps into the race to know for sure. We would like to be closer the front but I think we can work our way forward tomorrow."

KELLY SUTTON, NO. 02 TEAM COPAXONE SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 32ND:

""The track felt a little greasy after the tires from the qualifying before us, but our Team COPAXONE® Chevy Silverado felt a lot better than in practice. I'm looking forward to racing in front of our sponsor tomorrow afternoon, since they market COPAXONE®, the therapy I take to help me manage my MS. Talk about a sponsor who really helps! But this Chevy Silverado is a good truck, the same truck we took to a 15th at Charlotte. I think the truck will come to me during the race, and we've built some adjustability into this Silverado too."
