Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

“We weren’t sure what to expect today with the pavement changes and different left-side tires. We got a good feel for everything in first practice, so we used second practice to try out a few different setups. We have some work to do before tomorrow, but I’m confident in this OneMain Financial team. We’ve gotten it done here before and we’re ready to do it again.”

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Pilot Flying J team

“Overall we had a solid day today with our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet. We just got a little too tight over the course of a long run during final practice, but I feel like we made some good gains and have a good idea of where we need to be at for the race tomorrow night.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 Whisky River team

“We made some really good adjustments over the course of the two practice sessions today and our Whisky River Chevrolet showed solid speed. I know track conditions will be a little different tomorrow night once the sun goes down, but I think we’ll be in pretty good shape for the race.”

Tyler Reddick, driver No. 9 BurgerFi team

“I felt really good about our speed in Turns 3 and 4 during practice today but was just a little bit too tight in Turns 1 and 2. My guys on this JR Motorsports team worked really hard in both sessions and I feel like we found a really good direction to go into the race tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to getting going and getting this BurgerFi Chevy to the front.”
