Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

"Kevin (Meendering, crew chief) and the guys did a great job on our new OneMain Financial Chevrolet. We had some good runs throughout the day today and are close to getting our Camaro dialed in for tomorrow. Our biggest challenge will come from the track and what it'll do between now and the race. I'm looking forward to tomorrow and driving this fast car."

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Pilot Flying J team

"Overall, I am pretty happy with our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet. We got close to where we wanted to be on handling after first practice and we tried some different lines during the second practice to find additional speed. This track has multiple grooves you can run, so we just have to find the right one for us. Our No. 5 team continues to work hard every weekend on this car and we will be ready come green flag tomorrow."

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 Suave Men team

"Our Suave Men Chevy was pretty good in practice. We spent most of our time just trying to find the right balance in our Camaro. We'll keep working on it tonight, but I think we'll be fast in tomorrow's race. I'm looking forward to it."

William Byron, driver No. 9 Liberty University team

“We started off practice a little tight, but the guys made good changes throughout practice and got the car where we need it to be. At the end, we were able to make a pretty long run and we felt pretty good about it. I think we should have a pretty good Liberty University Chevrolet tomorrow for the race.”
