Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

"Our OneMain Financial team tried a few different setups in today's practice sessions. Being only two points behind the playoffs leader gives us the opportunity to be aggressive, race for stage points and also the win. Hopefully we have a strong qualifying run tomorrow, putting us in a good position at this challenging race track."

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Pilot Flying J team

"The Monster Mile can be a tricky track to figure out sometimes. We still have some things we need to work on, but our Pilot Flying J team continues to work hard to get our Camaro running well. We are confident that come tomorrow, we will be ready to go and compete for the win."

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 Textron Off Road team

“The guys did a great job making some good gains during the two practice sessions today. This is a pretty short race, so being able to have a fast, good-handling car from the start is important. We have some more work to do tonight, but I think our Textron Off Road Chevy will be really fast tomorrow.”

William Byron, driver No. 9 Axalta / Central Aluminum team

“We had two really good practice sessions today. We had a couple really good adjustments from where we unloaded, but overall unloaded with good speed. Our Axalta Chevrolet was able to get a few good runs in and hopefully that translates into the race tomorrow.”
