Michael Annett, driver No. 1 Pilot Flying J team

“We made some good gains today in practice. Travis Mack (crew chief) and this entire Pilot Flying J team have been giving it their all. Our mile-and-a-half program has been strong and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do tomorrow as we close out the regular season.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

“Our BRANDT Professional Agriculture Camaro was pretty strong in practice today. I’m definitely looking forward to this race. We have a bunch of folks from BRANDT coming and we want to have a strong run for them. Our goal is to be up front at the end tomorrow and continue that momentum into the playoffs next week.”

Ryan Truex, driver No. 8 Bar Harbor team

“It felt great to be back working with these guys on this No. 8 team and to be back behind the wheel of the Bar Harbor Chevy. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all these guys worked really hard throughout practice and I think we have a solid baseline for where we need to be this time tomorrow. It should be a fun day and I’m confident that we will come away with a good run.” 

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 Switch team

“We made some really good gains today with our Switch Chevrolet and I feel like we have a good idea of what we need to do to keep finding more speed tomorrow. I just can’t thank all of these guys enough on this JR Motorsports team. Hopefully we can have a smooth day tomorrow and come home with a strong finish, especially here in my home town. I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do.”
