"Two poles in a row for the NetZero Platinum Chevy Silverado definitely feels great. We shattered a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series record today too. We have the most poles in the history of the series with sixteen. We were tied with Joe Ruttman and Mike Skinner, until today. I got the old man! It's really good to see the results on the racetrack that we work so hard for in the shop. Dennis Connor, my crew chief, and I have been together every step of the way. He and the guys work hard to bring superior equipment to the racetrack every week. This really is an awesome race team."

"I think we should be just fine tomorrow for the race. Honestly there have been very few races this year where we haven't had a shot at winning. Every week the truck is fast, it just takes a while to get all the players worked out. Now we are trying to get where we are bullet proof, if that is possible."

"We are really excited to be here at the Milwaukee Mile, I've raced here every year with the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and we always look forward to this race. They call me Mile Track Jack. I hope we can live up to the name tomorrow."

"Dennis Connor really does a great job. Team NetZero is one hard working group. This year we've gone from one team with 10 guys to two teams with 30 guys. It makes a real difference in the shop. Dennis has really done a great job, it's aging him pretty quickly, but he's doing a great job."

Ricky Hendrick

"My hats off to Jack for getting another pole. That's really great. He's out there proving why he's the best in the series."

"Our truck was tight. It's a problem we've been having for the last few races and it is definitely a problem that we have got to fix. We are always tight. We haven't had this problem all year, but we sure have lately. It's in the communication I guess. We will get it figured out. We are very happy to be the Top Rookie and sixth is a very good start. I know we can do better because we do have great equipment and I couldn't ask for guys who work any harder. Our chemistry is a little off right now and there are still a lot of things that I have to learn as a driver. Team GMAC is capable of so much , we'll just keep digging."

"I think we should be fine for the race, we put good times up on the board during practice. We have been really consistent for the races. We are still looking for our first win."
