Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 Armour Chili team

“We have a really good Armour Chili Chevrolet. We brought the same car we had earlier this year, so we know it has speed. I got a good feel for the handling and how our Chevrolet will run with the pack in practice today. Hopefully we can qualify well and stay up front.”

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Pilot Flying J team

“Our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet was really strong today in practice. JR Motorsports always has fast Camaros here, so I know we’ll have a good shot at going for the win. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s race.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 Breyers 2in1 team

“We got a really good feel for our Breyers 2in1 Chevy during first practice, so we opted not to go out for final practice today. Our No. 7 Camaro showed a lot of speed and if we can stay up front and out of trouble tomorrow, I think we’ll be in great shape. Daytona hasn’t been kind to us lately, so it would be nice to get a good, solid finish here.”

Tyler Reddick, driver No. 9 Takl team

“I feel really good about the speed in our Takl Chevrolet this weekend. It feels a lot like our car did here in February. Hopefully we can keep our nose clean all race long tomorrow and be there at the end. If we can survive, I think we have a great shot to go back to Victory Lane here in Daytona.”
