How was your qualifying lap?

“I thought it was faster than that. I felt like I was going a lot faster than I did yesterday — I only went a tenth quicker than yesterday. When I got done I was like, ‘That’s going to be up there, that’s going to be the pole.’ I don’t know how those other guys went that fast so I’m a little confused.”

How will the new tire impact your Camry for the race?

“Hopefully, Jason (Ratcliff, crew chief) and all the JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) guys did their homework on this tire — I know we ran it before in the past. I think we have some notes on it. We’ll see here later what the difference is — I’m sure it’s going to have a little bit less grip being how it’s quite a bit of an older tire — just sitting for awhile hardens a tire up a lot. I’m prepared for a pretty big change, I think, as soon as we bolt those things on.”
