Quotes:

Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

"It’s always harder on the guys to figure out the setups and handling when we have a new package. We learned a lot in first practice, especially Justin (Allgaier) and I, on how our cars will handle in the draft. It’s going to be a chess match with this aero package, knowing when to push and pass. It’s going to be a heck of a race."

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 TMC Transportation team

"The TMC Transportation Chevrolet felt really good today in both practice sessions. The draft is definitely going to be a game changer tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the race will play out. If we can get the right help and time out our runs correctly, I feel like we will be right in the hunt tomorrow afternoon."

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

"I’m really happy with the speed we had today with our BRANDT Professional Agriculture Camaro. Obviously, there’s a new package here at Michigan International Speedway, which is a lot of fun. There was a lot of learning going on in practice. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s race."

Tyler Reddick, driver No. 9 Nationwide Children’s Hospital team

“Our Nationwide Children’s Hospital Chevrolet felt strong in the draft in both practices today. The race will be interesting for sure and I’m confident that myself and my JR Motorsports teammates will be right in the thick of the pack tomorrow and if we are able to keep our nose clean all day, I think we will have a great shot at contending for the win when it’s all said and done.”
