CHEVY NSCS AT KANSAS: Team Chevy Post Qualifying Quotes



American Muscle


October 1, 2010


“We made quite a few adjustments on the DuPont Chevrolet during practice. I really didn’t feel like the track was that much different from what we ran. We drew a late number so that certainly helps. But we struggled a lot in practice getting the car through (turns) three and four. I changed some things on my line. But I’m just so proud of 9crew chief) Steve (Letarte) and all these guys for the adjustments and the day we’ve had. And the way we’ve been qualifying lately, we just have not been qualifying good and it’s something we’ve put a lot of effort in and today finally things went our way and man, that’s like a pole to me right now.”


RYAN NEWMAN, NO. 39 U.S. ARMY CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 6TH:  “I pretty much got everything I could get out of the lap,” said Newman a former Kansas winner. “The U.S. Army Chevrolet was a little snug in Turns 1 and 2, but after that it felt good and we’ll have a good starting position for Sunday’s race. I was really pleased with our car’s setup in practice. We’ll dial it in a little more during Saturday’s two practice sessions and then look forward to a successful race on Sunday.”


JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 42 TARGET CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 7TH: “This Target Chevy was fast in practice. I think the track is slow. Everybody seems to be running a little slower.  I made a little mistake out there trying too hard. So far so good. Now the question is if it’s going to pick up as it cools down a little, so we’ll see.”


TONY STEWART, NO. 14 OFFICE DEPOT/OLD SPICE CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 14TH: “Just was really loose. It feels like the track gave up a little grip. We missed backing up what we did in practice by a tenth, but I think there are a lot of guys, right now, are happy with they can maintain what they ran in practice. It just seems like it is a little warmer, lost a lot of grip compared to practice now.”
