JOEY LOGANO, No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Fusion – Qualified 2nd

RAIN IS WIPING OUT QUALIFYING, BUT YOU WILL STILL START ON THE FRONT ROW. “I would rather have been first but I feel good about that. I was hoping we would qualify because I thought we had a shot at the pole, but I will take second, that is a good consolation.”

WHAT ABOUT THIS TRACK DO YOU LIKE? “I like fast race tracks. Fast bumpy race tracks seem to be a little better for Penske for some reason. It seems like the bumps have always been good for us. Kentucky and here they have been good to us over the years.”

YOU WILL HAVE TRACK POSITION, AT LEAST TO START THE RACE. “Track position is key. This first round is all about clicking off good finishes, which is what it is all about. A nice start here will really start that and we are off to a nice start, starting on the front row.”

BRAD KESELOWSKi, No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion – Qualified 3rd

RAIN WILL PUT YOU THIRD TO START THE RACE “It is a lot better than last year when we started 25th. We will take that and move on. The car has been pretty good so far so I feel good about that. Track position is important here but last year we were able to pass people and get up to the front. I feel like you can get there it is just a matter of time. Good cars always get to the top. I feel like we have a good car though and we will start close to the front, so that is a good start.”
