BRIAN VICKERS, No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine Toyota
Were you pleased with your qualifying effort? “Yeah, but not satisfied. Obviously we would have loved to sit on the pole, but I think I’m pleased from the standpoint that I feel like everyone on this Aaron’s Dream Machine Camry team -- we maximized our opportunity in qualifying today and that’s always a good feeling. I feel like we got the most out of our potential of what we showed up with in the car and the speed and everything. The guys did a great job. They made the car better each run, and the fact we ran our fastest on our third run on tires is good. That’s what we really need to keep building on as a team and these qualifying sessions, is being able to get better each run and we haven’t always been doing that, so being able to accomplish that regardless of where we qualify is something I really liked. I liked the fact that we felt good about all three runs and we kept getting better. Not only for ourselves, but relative to the competition. A top-five starting spot is never a bad thing. Track position is going to mean a lot here and it’s good to see this Aaron’s Dream Machine Camry up front.”

CLINT BOWYER, No. 15 RK Motors Toyota
“I was loose. Just couldn’t put the throttle down off of two and four and if you’re struggling off of those two corners you aren’t going to post a very good lap. We’ve got a little work to do. The good news is the car was good in race trim. We worked most of that last practice in traffic so we’ve got a good gauge of what we are going to have tomorrow. Wish we could have qualified better but we’ll be fine tomorrow.”

• ESPN will broadcast the race at 1:00 p.m. ET Sunday.
