Q: How did the car feel and were you surprised by the speed?

A: "The car is fast, and we knew it would be as fast as it was in Daytona. We just didn’t have a chance to show the speed at Daytona (due to an oil pump malfunction). It’s good that we still have the speed in it. We put ourselves in the right spot today to hit the big number. I think we only did nine or 10 laps and everything felt good so we’re ready to go and qualify tomorrow."

Q: What are your thoughts about qualifying?

A: "We would like to be in the same position as we were today. At the start of practice we got in front of a line of cars and were able to make a run up there. The difference tomorrow is that we don’t know what everyone else’s plan is going to be. Everyone will be trying to do what we did in practice today and that’s to be in the right position to get the fastest speed. And at the same time it’s going to be a risky session. Our No. 1 goal right now is to make sure this Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Chevrolet races on Sunday. If we feel like we’re in a danger zone we’ll abort. It really doesn’t matter where you start here."
