Michael Annett, driver No. 1 Pilot Flying J team

“Our Pilot Flying J Camaro was pretty solid in practice today. I wish we had been able to turn more laps in final practice but unfortunately another car tore off our back bumper cover and that limited our time out on the track. I’m still optimistic that we’ll be strong in tomorrow’s race. I’m ready to see what we can do.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 Suave Men team

“This No. 7 crew just keeps bringing me great Camaros week in and week out. Overall I was very happy with how our Suave Men Chevy handled in practice and I think we have a car capable of running up front tomorrow. There’s some strong competition out there, but I’m confident we can be there at the end and go after another win here at Indy.”

Jeb Burton, driver No. 8 State Water Heaters team

“This State Water Heaters Chevrolet felt really good today and I can’t thank Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all the guys on this No. 8 team enough. It feels so good to be back behind the wheel again and I’m looking forward to having a good run once we get going tomorrow. I’m ready to go.”

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 Switch team

“Today was definitely a learning day for our Switch Chevrolet. After having never turned a lap here before, I feel like we have a good idea of what we need to do to get us ready to go for tomorrow. This place is such a unique track and hopefully we can come away with a strong run tomorrow and keep our momentum going as the playoffs get closer.”
