Quotes:

Michael Annett, driver No. 1 Pilot Flying J Thank You Veterans team

“This is big weekend for us. We know what we’ve got to do and I feel like this team is up for the challenge. Our Pilot Flying J Thank You Veterans Camaro is fast and the guys did a great job making adjustments throughout both practice sessions today. We’re ready to go.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

“Our BRANDT Professional Agriculture Camaro is really good. We knew the goal coming into this weekend was to just to go try to win the race. That’s the easiest way to make it to Homestead. But if we can’t do that, we’ve got to point our way in. I feel like we’ve done a good job at preparing this Camaro. We have a lot of speed and I think we’ve got a good shot at going to Victory Lane tomorrow.”

Zane Smith, driver No. 8 La Paz Cocktail Mix team

“Our La Paz Cocktail Mix Chevrolet felt really good today. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and everyone on this team made some really good changes that have us in the right direction. I’m just looking forward to getting out there tomorrow and seeing what we can do. We’ve had a lot of good runs this year and hopefully we can have another one tomorrow.”

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 Lockheed Martin team

“We worked really hard during both practices with our Lockheed Martin Chevrolet and I feel very confident in the direction that Dave (Elenz, crew chief) has us going heading in to tomorrow. We all know what it is going to take to make that Championship 4 and I know that myself and everyone on this No. 9 JR Motorsports team is going to do everything we can to get our way to Homestead. I’m ready to get going.”
