Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

"The guys made some great changes going from first practice into final practice today. I'm pretty happy with our OneMain Financial Chevrolet and can't thank my team enough for all of their hard work. I'm looking forward to tomorrow and to hopefully getting a win not only for the guys, but for all of our partners."

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Pilot Flying J team

“We started figuring some things out late in the first practice and our Pilot Flying J Camaro performed better on our first run in second practice. We weren't expecting this rain shower that ended practice early for us, but we feel like we have the car in a good place. Our No. 5 guys worked hard all week getting this car ready and we will be ready to tackle the Magic Mile tomorrow."

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

"Our BRANDT Professional Chevy was really good in first practice today here at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. During my first run in final practice we had a parts failure in the right front, so the guys were working on that when practice was called due to rain. We'll keep working on it tonight, but I think we're going to have a really fast Camaro for tomorrow's race.

William Byron, driver No. 9 Axalta/Peerless team

“I thought practice went ok today. During the first practice, we had really good balance in our Axalta Chevrolet. We got better during each run of first practice and then we weren’t able to get many laps in during final practice before the rain came. Hopefully we can go back on some of the changes and make a good balance for tomorrow’s race.”
