Quotes:

Michael Annett, driver No. 1 Allstate Parts and Service team

“This team has been on a roll lately and we’re looking to keep it that way. Travis Mack (crew chief) and the guys did an awesome job on adjustments today in practice and I think we’ll be fast tomorrow. Hopefully we can get our Allstate Parts and Service Chevy to Victory Lane.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

“I’m really happy with the changes we made throughout practice to get our BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevy dialed in. We had a little bit of radio issues, but we were able to work through it. I always enjoy coming to this track and I’m ready for tomorrow. We have a big group of folks from BRANDT coming and we want to run well for them.”

Jeb Burton, driver No. 8 LS Tractor team

“Our LS Tractor Chevrolet definitely got better as our practices went on today. We were too tight in the center in both practices, but Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and the team made really good adjustments all day to get our handling to where it needed to be. I’m really looking forward to strapping in tomorrow and seeing what we can do for not only my first NXS race at Michigan, but our first race with LS Tractor.”

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 Switch team

“I feel like we have a really good Switch Chevrolet heading into tomorrow. The car drove really good through the corners and we continued to make gains throughout each run. Dave (Elenz, crew chief) and everyone on this JR Motorsports crew worked really hard all day long and I can’t thank them enough. Hopefully we can keep this going into tomorrow and come home with another strong afternoon.”
