“The car was under me and I was being a little protective. We have a great car for tomorrow night so I am pretty excited about that.” Biffle said.

“That was good. I just would feel better if I got beat by more I guess. I felt like I got it all out of there and we just missed it a little bit. Our car has a lot of speed we just don’t have it driving exactly right yet.” Kenseth said of his qualifying lap.

Tony Stewart qualified 29th in a backup car after hitting the outside wall during practice.

“I just got loose and didn’t have enough race track to get it gathered up. We haven’t got a lot of laps on this one, but I think we feel better with this one so far.” Stewart said.
