TOYOTA QUOTES 

CHRISTOPHER BELL, No. 20 SiriusXM Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing 

Starting Position: 13th

How was your qualifying lap?

“It wasn’t what we were expecting or hoping for, but I still think that our SiriusXM Camry is going to race really well today. This is a fun racetrack. Tire wear is at a premium, and who knows. I think we ended up right on the outside of the cut line, so we only have one lap on our tires. These guys are going to have another lap on them, so we will see what happens.”

TY DILLON, No. 96 Lure Lock/Bass Pro Shops Toyota Camry, Gaunt Brothers Racing 

Starting Position: 39th 

How was your qualifying lap?

“We ran some laps, and none of them counted, so that is frustrating. I think we were 400 feet from the start/finish line and the caution came out. We definitely improved from practice and got a little bit of gains that we need to get, and I think we picked up quite a bit. We still need some more to go. We are just going to have to run smart, methodical race – run a perfect race and hope people make mistakes. I think we are going to have a good opportunity to capitialize and get a good finish.”
