AJ ALLMENDINGER -- No. 43 Richard Petty Hall of Fame Ford Fusion
"It is not bad. You can be in the top-10 here and be happy. We just got a little tight in three and four. I got through one and two really well and I was thinking that we had a chance. I tried to pick up the throttle in three and it got tight in the center. That was the difference right there."
GUYS HAVE BEEN SLIPPING A LOT; DID YOU EXPERIENCE ANY OF THAT? "Well, I saw a lot of guys sliding around out there, but I actually had good grip out there so I went after it. If it had stuck through three and four we would have been really good. I don't know if I would have gotten a pole, but it would have been darn close."
PAUL MENARD -- No. 98 Zecol/Menards Ford Fusion
"I wasn't too happy with my lap. A lot of people have slowed down and I was hoping we could run the same, if not better, than we did in practice. If we had then we would be in a lot better position. From where we unloaded to where we ended practice I am really happy with changes that were made. I don't that that run will give us a good spot, but it will be okay. We just have to adjust for Sunday."
DOES THE WAY YOU RAN IN PRACTICE GIVE YOU OPTIMISM FOR SUNDAY? "Yeah, we hit on a couple of things right at the end of practice. We didn't get to expand on them, but we will work on that tomorrow and hope to improve things for Sunday."
