Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

“The rain yesterday forced us to an early practice this morning. Cool temperatures always mean a lot of grip and we’re fast. We are going to get ready to qualify and I feel good about our chances this afternoon.”

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Allstate Parts and Service team

“Our Allstate Parts and Service Chevrolet needs a little more forward bite. There are two long straightaways here at Mid-Ohio and if you don't get off the corner well, you lose a ton of time. Our No. 5 team is working hard to get everything ready for qualifying and the race later today.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

"I’m really, really happy with our BRANDT Professional Agriculture Camaro today. It was a short, abbreviated practice this morning, so obviously we were trying to learn a lot in a short amount of time. I feel like the guys did a great job, and as the track got faster, we stayed up with it. We just have to make sure we make the right adjustments for today’s race."

William Byron, driver No. 9 Axalta/Ambassador Supply team

"Overall, I felt like getting laps to me was the biggest thing. Being able to run a few laps in a row really helped me. It was a short practice, but during qualifying we will get the opportunity to run a few more laps and get dialed in for the race.”
