MICHAEL MCDOWELL, No. 34 Love’s Travel Stops Ford Mustang -- HOW WAS YOUR PRACTICE? “It was fun. Anytime you have this many changes with the package you want to get some seat time and figure out the runs and figure out how to time passes and where the momentum is going to come from."
“We didn’t get to draft yet so I actually had to watch pretty closely to see what to expect. We were working on single car stuff and getting some of our little quirks and little issues right. There was different single car stuff that we had to work on and get right."
ERIK JONES, No. 20 Stanley Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing - Can you talk about the sensation you felt during the first practice session? “It feels really fast, but you look at the speeds and look at the times and actually the fastest car wasn’t even as fast as we were here last year."
DAVID RAGAN, No. 38 Shriners Hospitals for Children Ford Mustang - WHAT DID YOU PICK UP ON IN PRACTICE? “I think we have learned that it isn’t fun to wreck in practice so we try to be a little conservative. Right off the bat I felt my car accelerate right off the bat from pit road, a lot faster than normal at a speedway. I felt the runs were incredible. I have never been able to get such a quick run catching a car in front of me."
