Sage Karam, No. 22 Comfort Revolution/Brantley Gilbert Chevrolet: "We went slower than we did yesterday and everyone else was going faster, so it was definitely a frustrating run.  We didn't go out this morning for the warm up, and I think that might have contributed to it.  I didn't have the time to feel the track out, and I think we missed on the setup a bit.  The team has diagnosed the problem and corrected it, so we're ready to go for tomorrow's practice.  I think we have a better race car than we do a qualifying car anyway, so I'm really looking forward to the race next Sunday.  You can win this race from any position really, and that's the beauty of the event.  Everyone is so close on speed, so you know it's going to be a really good race, and hopefully we can get the No. 22 Comfort Revolution/Brantley Gilbert Chevrolet right in the thick of things."
