Quotes:

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

“Travis Mack (crew chief) and the team did a great job making adjustments throughout both practice sessions today and I feel like our Allstate Parts and Service Chevy is really good. We’ve been strong on mile-and-a-half tracks this season and I’m confident we can continue that tomorrow here at Kansas.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT/TradeMark Nitrogen Camaro team

“We fired off lacking a little rear grip today in practice, but this BRANDT/TradeMark Nitrogen team made some fantastic adjustments to get our Camaro more dialed in. Tomorrow we just need to execute and maximize stage points and I think we’ll be in good shape. If we end up in Victory Lane and lock ourselves into the Championship 4, that’d be even better.”

Ryan Truex, driver No. 8 Marquis Spa team

“We made a lot of gains with our Marquis Spa Chevy today during practice and I can’t thank Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all the guys on this No. 8 JR Motorsports team enough. Tomorrow should be an interesting day for sure and I feel really confident that we will be in contention and up front all race long. I’m ready to get going.”

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 PUBG Mobile team

“Our PUBG Mobile Chevrolet is really fast. It took me a little bit to get used to driving around here in an Xfinity car versus the truck last year but I feel like we made a ton of progress throughout both practices and that we are in a really good place heading in to tomorrow. We just need to be smart and execute all race long. If we do that I feel like we are going to have a really good day, hopefully good enough for a chicken dinner.”
