Bobby Labonte, driver of the No. 47 Kroger Toyota Camry:

*Following qualifying today, your focus now shifts to Duel, No. 1. After being a spectator of the Sprint Unlimited last night, what are your thoughts on the qualifying races Thursday and the Daytona 500 on Sunday?

"The Duels should be a lot of fun for fans to watch and the Daytona 500 is going to be an exciting race," Labonte said. "I thought the Sprint Unlimited last night was pretty good when they were pack racing. A lot of cars were drafting in different areas - - a pass made here and there like pack racing is going to be. When they put more cars out there, it's going to be different. It looked like handling is going to be a little bit of a factor and that will make it interesting."
