Quotes:

Michael Annett, driver No. 1 Pilot Flying J team

“This Pilot Flying J Chevrolet definitely got better as the day went on during practice. Travis (Mack, crew chief) and all these guys made some really good adjustments during both sessions that have us heading in the right direction looking ahead to tomorrow night. Now all we need to do is continue to execute like we have been and tomorrow should be a really solid day.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 FilterTime team

“Practice today was all about finding a good balance in the setup for our FilterTime Camaro. We made some good gains and we’ve been fast here the past few years, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do in the race. This team has been working hard and I have no doubt we’ll be running up front tomorrow night.”

Ryan Truex, driver No. 8 ShopFGL.com team

“It feels really good to get back behind the wheel of this No. 8 Chevrolet. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and everyone on this JR Motorsports team have been working their tails off all day long and I feel like we have a good baseline for what we need to do tomorrow under the lights. I just can’t thank everyone enough and I’m ready to get going.”

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 Nationwide Children’s Hospital team

“We have had some good speed right off of the truck with our Nationwide Children’s Hospital Chevrolet and we continued to get faster over the course of both practices. Dave (Elenz, crew chief) came up with some really good changes and I feel like we are in a good place as we look to tomorrow night. Hopefully we can avoid any trouble tomorrow and be there in contention in the end. It’s going to be a fun night for sure.”
