All NASCAR Busch Series practice has now concluded prior to this morning's qualifying session and the running of the Camping World 200. Steve Wallace's fast lap of 29.550 seconds in session one ranked him ninth overall. After making its mock qualifying attempt in the first session, the team chose to focus solely on race setup in session three. Following final practice, Wallace and team are pleased with the No.66's handling characteristics for today's event. After a rare morning drivers' meeting, qualifying is next for Wallace and team. The No.66 will be the 43rd of 45 teams to make an attempt in the session.

STEVE WALLACE, DRIVER, NO.66 RAPID INDUSTRIAL CLEANING DODGE CHARGER:

"I'm really optimistic about today's race. Our car really handled well in race trim during the final practice. I know that the time sheet doesn't show that, but most guys made their mock qualifying runs in the final practice, whereas we made ours in the first. The first practice will be a lot closer to qualifying conditions, so we felt that was the right thing to do. With that said, our car really turned well in race trim and allowed me to keep a lot of momentum through the center of the corner, which is key at New Hampshire. If we can just run a solid race and not make too many mistakes, I feel like we have a car capable of a top-ten."
