All NASCAR Busch Series practice has now concluded prior to Saturday's qualifying session and the running of the Meijer 300. Following two strong practice sessions and riding momentum gathered by its pole in last week's Busch Series event at Nashville, the RWI Racing squad is optimistic about their No.66 Dodge's performance. The team is looking towards tomorrow's event as one in which Steve Wallace could have a strong opportunity to pick up his first career top-five finish, or even possibly victory, in the Busch Series.
Steve Wallace, Driver, No.66 HomeLife Communities Dodge Charger: "We had a really good car in practice today; we fought a little bit of a tight condition, but not much at all really. We were position one on the speed charts for the majority of the first practice, until right at the very end. A few guys went out in qualifying trim in the first practice and beat us. We weren't in qualifying trim at all in that session, so that makes me feel really good about how we stacked up there. Then, in the second practice, we worked hard on making some longer race runs and also ended up making our mock-qualifying run. It was very crowded at the end of the day when we made our run and I had to deal with some traffic on my laps, so I really feel like we're definitely better than sixth fastest in qualifying trim. We have a great qualifying draw and will go out next to last tomorrow afternoon, which should be the coolest and fastest part of the session. If we can just manage not to make too many mistakes and beat ourselves tomorrow night, I really feel like we'll have a shot to be up in the top five at the end when it counts."
