On his qualifying run... "I finally feel like I know the track now. I feel much better about it. All of a sudden during the practice session, I said `I like this track, this is fun'. Except that I should probably be scared in qualifying and having fun in a practice session!

"Now that we're fast enough, we can start to really work on the car. We need to show the top six guys that we're getting faster and better each time and we'll be there for the race. I think the race pace will actually be in the 23's. I'm looking forward to a good run tomorrow and to picking up a spot in the point standings."
