This race sees a major shakeup in the standings. Both Robby Gordon Motorsports cars have qualified in the top 3, while Hendrick ringer Adrian Fernandez puts the #5 in the top 5. Jamie McMurray qualifies the 2nd Ganassi Dodge in the top 10. Robert Yates Racing, Curb Agajanian, and DCT's hopes of making the top 30 continue to dwindle. Scott Gaylord ALMOST gave Jimmy Means his first start of the year, while Johnny Sauter luckily can rely on the owners points rented from Jay Robinson, and hopefully they can get a decent result. The last qualifying news is Kim Crosby and Shawna Robinson make their first starts of the year.

Other rumors circulating around have NEMCO Motorsports looking at selling off their owners points. The team rumored to obtain them is GIC-Mixon Motorsports, who has struggled to qualify for races with Rookie Kim Crosby. This deal would see GIC-Mixon obtain the #7 and the owners points associated. GIC Also has been looking at a veteran driver to pilot the #7 if the deal goes through, to help evaluate the team and try and keep them inside the top 30. Kim Crosby and the #24 would continue to operate on a part time basis.
