MIKE SKINNER , No. 5 Toyota Tundra, Bill Davis Racing - Starting: 1st
Qualifying Lap: 16.382 (109.877 mph)

How would you rate your qualifying effort?

"We're pretty happy with that lap. The Toyota Tundra has been fast all year, and today was no different. We did one qualifying run during practice, and that was good, so we knew we were going to contend for the pole tonight. That's all we had in it. I could've gone out there five more times without getting the same lap time."

How has the track changed because of the rain?

"With the rain coming between practice sessions and before qualifying, we had a chance to see different characteristics of the track throughout the day. During qualifying, the track was green, so as more and more guys went out for their laps, it got faster. We had a little advantage going out 17th, but we dodged some bullets with the fast trucks behind us."
