AFTER TWO ROUNDS OF QUALIFYING:

WHIT BAZEMORE, MATCO TOOLS IRON EAGLE DODGE STRATUS R/T, is No. 3 after two rounds of qualifying, with a 4.835-second lap at 321.88 mph. Concern in the camp regarding some of the potential bad weather conditions in the area has put pressure on the teams to qualify well today.

BAZEMORE: "We're keeping an eye on the weather because it's kind of questionable for tomorrow, and it made it really a priority to do well today and we had a very conservative first run that put us third. From that point we were able to tune the Matco Tools Iron Eagle Dodge up a little bit and run a competitive .83, which was still fairly conservative. If we have the opportunity, we feel we can definitely improve on that tomorrow and maybe increase our qualifying position some more."
