Indianapolis: Qualifying Quotes

KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Budweiser Dodge Charger)
Qualified 8th
"I felt that the track was a little slicker and I just drove the Budweiser Dodge too hard to get a good lap. If I would have slowed down, I probably could have picked up a few more hundredths. I'm happy with the car. We need to have a good practice this afternoon. That's what it's all about to get ready for tomorrow."


REED SORENSON (No. 43 Valvoline Dodge Charger)
Qualified 9th
"Our Valvoline Dodge was pretty good. On the very last qualifying run that we did yesterday, we weren't where we wanted to be and put the tune-up back to where it was earlier. I lost a little bit of time in Turn 2. The car was really good in Turns 3 and 4 and made some time back up. I'm proud of all the Valvoline guys. I think that it's good to start up front here. I'm not sure where it's going to end up, but it just makes for a lot easier day knowing that you just have to work on your car for the cleaner air."


AJ ALLMENDINGER (No. 44 Hunt Brothers Dodge Charger)
Qualified 33rd
"Man, we were just loose. That wasn't a fun lap. We are going to work on setting our car up for long runs here in the final practice and get it ready for tomorrow. We aren't going to start where we want, but if we can get our car as good as we think we can, then we are going to be fine for the race."


ELLIOTT SADLER (No. 19 Best Buy Dodge Charger)
Qualified 42nd
"It obviously wasn't the qualifying lap that we were looking for in our Best Buy Dodge. It's very disappointing because we normally qualify really well here. Something strange was going in with the steering wheel that made the car feel like the car wouldn't turn. We've got another practice this afternoon to get our car right."
