ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 FUZZY’S ULTRA PREMIUM VODKA CHEVROLET: “I’m happy with the way the Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet handles. I still think we’re one of the fastest Chevys. It’s still hard with the Hondas in traffic, they have something we don’t. It’s slightly concerning for race day, but we’ll take a look and run as trimmed as we can. I’m happy with the car, the team has done a good job and we’re getting what we can out of it. We’re competitive. We just didn’t get a tow today, so the pylon didn’t light up.”

JR HILDEBRAND, NO. 21 PREFERRED FREEZER SERVICES CHEVROLET“Today went well; obviously, everyone is doing race prep at this stage. Everyone looks to find their strengths and weaknesses relative to each other. It’s harder to know today with the speed the Hondas showed again and considering the different programs that everyone is on. I think we’ll have our work cut out for us like you do every year. With some good stuff from Chevrolet and our ECR guys in the pits, hopefully we can keep the Preferred Freezer car up front.”
