    #20-Matt Kenseth:  “I guess truly none of us in actuality know. Clearly the bigger the crew is and the farther potentialities are you’ll maybe maybe perhaps be again from it to a undeniable level the bigger traipse you‘re going to scramble and the quickest lap time potentialities are you’ll maybe maybe perhaps be going to build up. That‘s now not a secret and all individuals knows that so all individuals is looking ahead to that crew. There‘s by no way going to be a crew, so I mediate it‘s going to be form of humorous to gaze. I don‘t know the way it‘s going to work. We did the first spherical at Daytona in Nationwide and it used to be a cramped loopy, nevertheless the discipline is clearly greater in Cup. I don‘t know what‘s going to happen. It need to be attention-grabbing especially having three rounds. I mediate clearly the first spherical is where you‘re going to build up your mercurial lap times and that one you‘re going to build as a lot as seemingly do extra calculations or extra aggressive moves or on the opposite hand you will want to connect it to build up that lap as soon as they commence thinning this discipline out and you accumulate down to 12 or even 25 or 24 or regardless of it‘s going to alternate a cramped bit. There‘s continuously a potential for a shatter as soon as you place 43 vehicles on the market. I mediate all individuals goes to set up out to do a formula to build up the quickest lap they’ll to commence as a ways as they’ll toward the entrance. What that‘s going to hunt for like I the truth is upright don‘t in actuality know. It’s miles dependent what all individuals does and there‘s no solution to foretell what all individuals goes to do. The parents in the massive pack aren‘t going to be the ones operating the short lap, it‘s going to be the folk in the again of the massive pack. Everybody knows that so there would perhaps maybe maybe now not be a enormous pack. I‘m now not in actuality sure exactly how it‘s going to scramble down.”

    #22-Joey Logano:  “I don‘t mediate somebody knows clearly what‘s gonna happen. I will command that now we accumulate a cramped sport idea to work and check out to do sure our vehicles now not finest accumulate stable nevertheless are ready to exit there and submit a honest correct lap and upright are trying to build up through all of the segments. Our car is peaceful the qualified car to build up through every section this year to this level. That‘s something to be ample with. Right here is the one precise wild card because there‘s a honest correct probability the quickest car would perhaps maybe maybe now not accumulate the pole this week. That‘s gonna be something very different. There‘s a form of strategy that‘s gonna scramble into this. We‘re gonna gaze Nationwide qualifying and seek what they do there, and then also I mediate as soon as you happen to hunt for at the discover we had here final year when we knew qualifying used to be gonna accumulate rained out and everybody form of did it, it took 5 laps for everybody to build up going because no person wished to be the lead guy. I mediate guys are upright gonna scramble and exit there. I mediate there will be a level that there are gonna be a form of vehicles on the market. I mediate potentialities are you’ll maybe maybe perhaps want to connect your lap up very immediate because I mediate after the first 5 minutes the tip 18 vehicles or so are seemingly gonna pit, and never be on the market. So the less vehicles which would perhaps maybe be on the chase discover, the more difficult it’s a ways to traipse that mercurial lap. I‘ve been working with my teammate Brad, and to boot McDowell some I mediate and form of determine what we‘ve got to do to connect together a honest correct equipment for us to traipse a immediate lap and accumulate the upright strategy, and to boot accumulate out of the rupture because I mediate it‘s gonna happen. I mediate there will be a shatter within this qualifying session upright for the reason that closing charge you‘re gonna be catching a majority of these guys. For guys at some level of the chase discover and then you definately‘re going to the bottom, he made up our minds he wants to build up out of the fashion and goes to the bottom, oh, shoot, you‘re gonna accumulate in a rupture. So you‘ve got to be on your toes at some level of the total session. I mediate as each and each session goes it‘s gonna accumulate a cramped bit calmer because clearly there are gonna be less vehicles on the market.”

    #34-David Ragan:  “There‘s no attach a matter to that we‘re gonna traipse together. The bigger the pack and the extra vehicles potentialities are you’ll maybe maybe perhaps need, the faster you scramble, nevertheless everybody has to sit down down down and mediate about what they want to carry out from qualifying. Fabricate you will want to sit down down on the pole? In case you will want to dilemma mercurial time or qualify in the tip three or four you‘re gonna need to be aggressive and do some terrible moves. In case you will want to be conservative and upright do the chase, you in overall is a cramped conservative and perhaps rush in the again of the pack or accumulate a shipshape lap and are on the market in and upright park it. You upright want to discover what you will want to build up out of qualifying, nevertheless there‘s no question there will be a quite spacious pack, I would accumulate the first allotment of that qualifying and there‘s no secret — the bigger the pack, the extra vehicles which would perhaps maybe be in line, the faster you‘re going to scramble. You‘ll accumulate some guys that realize they‘ll accumulate an more than just a few for the pole that perhaps wouldn‘t accumulate an more than just a few for the pole and to boot they‘ll take some potentialities, nevertheless I mediate in our case we upright want to play it frigid. Clearly accumulate into the chase. It would perhaps maybe be gargantuan to qualify in the tip 15 or 20 where lets accumulate a cramped greater pit stall choice, nevertheless I didn‘t in actuality come down here to upright dilemma my center of attention on sitting on the pole. We came down to set up out to do the complete lot we are able to to make a selection out the chase. It doesn‘t in actuality topic where you qualify.”

    #48-Jimmie Johnson:  “I don‘t know what goes to exactly happen. But to make a selection out the pole, you‘re going to build as a lot as exit there and chase. And the traipse that potentialities are you’ll maybe maybe perhaps accumulate on a crew that it a soccer-discipline-or-two sooner than you, is so dramatic that I even mediate that a 10 or 12-car line won‘t be as mercurial as somebody who falls way again in the pack and has an more than just a few over a lap or two to pull up into the pack. So that‘s what every driver goes to set up out to do. And setting that up goes to be tricky because one, all individuals goes to be attempting it; and two, as soon as you happen to hunt somebody in the again of you coming, why are you going to build up on the gas to assist them? So, bailing out of the gas, breaking up the pack, and things like which would perhaps maybe be all imaginable. So, I don‘t know. It‘s going to be thrilling clearly. We‘ll all clearly be engaged on it at some level of discover. And then qualifying itself will be very thrilling. The ingredient I‘m attempting to get back to grips with is where do I take a spacious danger? Attempting to qualify correctly or attempting to work my way during the pack to build as a lot as the entrance? And we‘re upright now not sure upright now what to query. We wished to get back here with a idea in role of how we had been going to qualify, nevertheless our thought appears to be like to alternate every 15 minutes. And we‘re going to wait except after P2 and pick what we‘re going to do.”

    #78-Martin Truex Jr.:  “We want to be in the identical snort as we had been at the present time. In the starting up place of discover we got in entrance of a line of vehicles and had been ready to do a traipse up there. The difference day after these days is that we don‘t know what everybody else‘s idea goes to be. Everybody will be attempting to do what we did in discover at the present time and that‘s to be in the upright snort to build up the quickest traipse. And at the identical time it‘s going to be a foul session. Our No. 1 procedure upright now is to do sure this Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Chevrolet races on Sunday. If we feel like we‘re in a danger zone we‘ll abort. It in actuality doesn‘t topic where you commence here.”

    #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr.:  “No one knows. I upright don‘t know. We’ll be able to upright accumulate to hunt. The fellow that gets the pole goes to build as a lot as hit it upright upright. We built a imprint recent chase car so our willingness to take dangers goes to be quite cramped at some level of that activity. We upright you perceive want to build up into the discipline with the automobile it doesn‘t topic where you commence instead of upright deciding on on pit toll road. Not sure exactly what our way is but. We‘ve peaceful got some conversations to build up between Steve (Letarte) and our teammates and upright form of feel out all individuals‘s thought about what they want to do and how they want to set up out to construct the most attention-grabbing consequence they’ll.
