Las Vegas Qualifying Report

AJ Allmendinger (No. 22 Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T)
Qualified 14th

HOW WAS YOUR QUALIFYING LAP? “I thought it was a good lap for the Pennzoil Dodge. I’m a little lost because the lap felt faster than the speed showed. Our car is fast. I’m not quite sure what happened.”

HOW DID YOU CAR HANDLE THE BUMPS IN BETWEEN TURNS 1 AND 2? “The car is really good over the bumps. It doesn’t feel like I’m scrubbing any speed off the car at all. The car is good. I’m just not sure why it wasn’t faster.”

HOW IS YOUR CAR IN RACE TRIM? “We have a little bit of work to do but the car is stable. It feels good around here. We’re just going to rub on it a little bit for tomorrow’s practice session and see if we can find some more speed in race trim.”

WHERE DO YOU FIND SPEED HERE? AERO? MECHANICAL? “Track position. You have to be up front because the track is so fast that you have to be aero good. You’re so much faster up front than in traffic here. The track isn’t that wide so you really want track position.”

Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T)
Qualified 20th
“I was hoping to pick up two-tenths. I think the field probably averaged three and I didn’t quite pick up two. Need to pick up a little more than that and I’ll go back to the drawing board and work on it.”

DID YOU THINK GOING OUT LATE IN THE SESSION WAS AN ADVANTAGE? “Oh yeah, you know it’s going to help you and the team is going to make the car better. And it did, just needed a little more.”
