Post qualifying quotes follow:

Brad Jaeger: "I think all things considered, fifth is a great place to start the race from. The Mustangs are strong, but we're right in the mix. I think we'll have a good race. We want long green runs and to be there at the end. 

"The team is awesome; they've been working hard to get the car ready for qualifying and the race, and we hope for a good day tomorrow.

"They had a red-velvet birthday cake for me before qualifying, and I think it helped!"

Nick McMillen: "I followed Brad onto the track on our out lap, and I was trying to pace myself so I didn't get caught in traffic. I got through the first four or five corners on my first flying lap, and I was trying to get more temperature in the tires, but then after the Andretti straight I went under the bridge and all four tires locked up. The ABS light was on. I talked to Kevin on the radio and we tried to reset it, but we didn't have ABS the rest of the session. So, I just tried to drive around and put in a reasonable lap, but I couldn't push it. I didn't get to put in a real flying lap at all.

"The good news is the car felt really good. I think we'll have good pace tomorrow for the race. We'll just have to be clean. I look forward to making passes and to try to move up through the field tomorrow."
