"We picked up in that second session, but we have a lot more left. We were a little light on that last run and I left out of low (gear) a little early. We think there is three to four hundredths left in the thing. That left lane is a lot better. We're going home tonight qualified, even though we didn't make a great run. We have the good lane tomorrow morning and we think that will be the best hit."

"It wasn't bad. We weren't aggressive enough on starting line on that second pass. We have both teams above that dotted line right now -- which is pretty good. There's a quite a bit of difference in the two lanes. I'd say at least two-hundredths of a second difference. The left lane is much better. We didn't make a great run in the left lane this morning, and I think we could have gone a low 6.84."

Notes: Johnson currently holds the second fastest time if the weekend.
