DAVID STARR, NO. 75 SPEARS MANUFACTURING SILVERADO, QUALIFIED SEVENTH:

"We are pretty excited with our qualifying spot. Our Chevrolet Silverado was good tonight, it was completely different from when we practiced today because of all the rain and drying the track. The track was completely different from practice as well.

"We are going to race on a completely different track tomorrow than we have today so hopefully Dave McCarty (crew chief) and my crew can make enough adjustments during the race as the track changes to keep us toward the front.

"I am really happy with our starting spot, I just want to have the same kind of finish in tomorrow's race."

JACK SPRAGUE, NO 16 CHEVY TRUCKS SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 25TH:

"It was just the luck of the draw for us today. We went out second in the order of the 42 trucks that are here and the track was very greasy from the jet dryer spending so much time on it this afternoon. There was no grip on the track because of all the rain so it was all I could do to hang on to it to be honest. I had it almost completely sideways one time and locked up the front brakes.

"Our Chevy Trucks Silverado will be good for tomorrow's race. The key will be to be patient and pick my way carefully toward the front, let Chris (Showalter, crew chief) and the guys make the right adjustments and we will be fine."

DENIIS SETZER, NO 46 CHEVROLET SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 29TH:

"We went out way too early with the track as slick as it was from the rain and the jet dryers. There was just nothing to get a hold of. My Silverado is good. We just have to race smart tomorrow and let the track and the race come to us and we will be fine."

KELLY SUTTON, NO 02 TEAM COPAXONE SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 28TH:

"This Chevy truck is definitely the right truck for this track. It's a shame we went out so early when the track was still green, but we ran hard, and are in good company for the start of the race. I think there will be several Silverado's marching up toward the front together tomorrow afternoon. I take my hat off to my crew, who did a spectacular job of setting up this truck with some adjustability so we could dial it in this afternoon. I am looking forward to an awesome race tomorrow!"
