MWR BRISTOL II LINEUP

15th         Brian Vickers                                

 

CLINT BOWYER, No. 15 5-hour ENERGY Toyota

How was your qualifying effort?

"We needed two-hundredths.  A 75 would've put us in the next show and we were a 77 but we definitely improved on where we were in practice.  I think we'll race alright.  We always seem to race well here.  Fun race, long race, a lot can happen, just got to maintain and keep yourself in the game and if you can do that you'll always seem like you can somehow get in the mix for the end."

 

Will 14th be a good starting spot for you?
"I would say it's just a shade in front of the eye of the storm.  You don't really want to be behind that eye of the storm is the biggest thing and I think we're either right in the middle of it or in front of it a little bit.  We'll be alright."

 

BRIAN VICKERS, No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine Toyota

How was qualifying?

"The guys did a good job with the car.  We just lost a little bit of grip somewhere -- don't know if the track did or what.  Billy (Scott, crew chief) and the guys did a good job making the car better for the second run.  Just not quite enough to close the deal.  A couple hundredths off it looked like from where we needed."

 

How is your car for Saturday night's race?
"I think we've got a good Aaron's Dream Machine Camry.  I was really happy with it the last practice in race trim through the last run.  We lost a little bit in the last run but hopefully we can get that back.  I was hoping to do a little better than that in qualifying.  The last time we went out the third time the tires were slowing down and it's just tough the third time out to go run 70s and just got the car a little bit too loose."
