BOBBY HAMILTON, JR.-25-Team Marines Ford Taurus (Qualified 3rd)

TALK ABOUT YOUR LAP.
"The cool weather was perfect for qualifying. It was taped. We got the perfect type of air. I think if we would have got our qualifying run right at the end of practice - one of those guys wrecked - so we just took a chance. It's a credit to all of my guys. The car had a ton of side bit and Robert Yates motors just tug down the straightway. The perfect scenario, it started to cloud up when we were going out so it worked to our advantage."

"We brought an '02 back this year. We didn't bring our '03; we're a little bit behind on getting those ready. We knew it could work, but we had too many unknowns. But now that we have this car, we knew what it would do. It was the car we had at Homestead, and it ran so good there and it's one of my favorite places. It wasn't like we struggle here being lost. We knew what we had when we came here. I think that after last week's run, dodging the bullet there and moving up a couple of spots in the points, hopefully we can leave here and do the same thing."

"Each year, coming back here it gets better. Of course, it loses grip and that's why the speeds are about a second off. The plus side of that is that you can run two wide and I guarantee you that you that this weekend. You'll see two wide and you'll probably see three wide in the Cup race and stay that way. It's going to definitely be a plus every time you come back. Also, we have the type of car we're looking forward to. The Marines Ford is fast untaped, so it's one of those things that if we can't win here, everybody will definitely know that we're here."
