WILL POWER, NO. 1 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, POLE WINNER: “I ran Montoya’s setup. I liked that a lot. It was very nice. I changed the setup drastically between every single session. I ended up with what I had. Just really happy for the team. Need to have a good day tomorrow. Had some rough races recently, so I want to really get it done.”

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 2 PPG AUTOMOTIVE REFINISH TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 3RD: It’s OK. We’ve been doing a good job. Today, I made too many mistakes at the end. Thought I had a really good car, didn’t put good luck together when it counted. Still qualified third, so I’m happy with that.

SCOTT DIXON, NO. 9 JURASSIC WORLD CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET. QUALIFIED 4TH: “It’s been a rough start here in Toronto – I actually feel like I’m driving a dinosaur. We had some electrical issues that took us out of practice to start the weekend and we’ve just been constantly making changes, even all the way through qualifying today. It’s not been a smooth weekend for us so far, but I think the car has a lot of potential speed. Chevy is doing a fantastic job and just dominating, so I’m obviously glad that I’m driving a Chevy.”

SEBASTIEN BOURDAIS, NO. 11 TEAM HYDROXYCUT – KVSH RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 5TH“It’s been a pretty good weekend so far for the Hydroxycut KVSH Racing team. A bit harder than last year, but hopefully the car will keep getting stronger so we can make a proper challenge during the race. I made a mistake on my last qualifying lap and that is a shame. We’ll just try and come back stronger tomorrow. Hopefully the rain holds off.”

LUCA FILIPPI, NO. 20 FUZZY’S VODKA CFH RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 6TH:  “I am very happy. This is my first Fast 6 of the season, I really wanted it since we came here. I knew we could do it because the car was good, I knew the circuit, and I knew I could do a good job.  I am satisfied because we set a goal and we achieved it. It would have been difficult to challenge the other guys in the Fast 6 because they had fresher tires than us. I’m very thankful to the guys because they reacted so well when they had to make changes to the car. They gave me the opportunity to get back out there and run, so I’m very grateful for that. Now its time for us to keep this pace and performance through the end of the season.”

TONY KANAAN, NO. 10 NTT DATA CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 9TH: “I think the No. 10 NTT DATA Chevrolet was much quicker than our starting position shows. We definitely had a top six car, but in that second round we just weren’t ever able to get up to speed and get the fast lap at the right time on the tires. Obviously I wish we could have finished at least in the top six, but it just didn’t happen and we’ll just have to work with where we’re at and make some big moves tomorrow in the race.”

JOSEF NEWGARDEN, NO. 67 HARTMAN OIL CFH RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 11TH: “Qualifying wasn’t what we were hoping for. We just struggled and didn’t quite get what we needed. We should have a good racecar, though. I am excited to work with the guys more and see what we can get out of it. We have a long race day ahead of us tomorrow, it’s hard to complete a race around here without any incidents. As long as we stay clean, we should be good to go.”

CHARLIE KIMBALL, NO. 83 LEVEMIRE FLEXTOUCH CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 15TH: “It’s a little disappointing, especially with how choppy our round was with the yellow flags and the car in the run-off. Overall I feel good about the Levemir® FlexTouch® car for tomorrow’s race. We’ll have to keep an eye on the weather to see if it’s going to shower or not – that might change a little bit of what we do in the warm-up. I think my engineers and I have a good direction for tomorrow’s race and I have a lot of confidence in the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing crew in pit lane to make sure that we have good stops.”

SEBASTIAN SAAVEDRA, NO. 8 AFS CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 17TH“I’m extremely disappointed that we weren’t able to advance out of the first round because of what happened. I’ll take this as a learning experience that just proves there are no room for errors. I knew we had a lap time that would most likely move me onto the next round, so on the last lap I went behind the barrier to get out of traffic. I did not know that a full-course yellow would come out because of what I did, but it ultimately ended our day. We’ll just focus on our race car now – we have an amazing car, so I’m looking forward to the race tomorrow.”

STEFANO COLETTI, NO. 4 KV RACING TECHNOLOGY CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 20TH: “We were really unlucky in our qualifying session. The team gave me a great car, which I think could have put me in the top-10 on the starting grid, but unfortunately a red flag was shown with two minutes to go. I was running 10th in my group before I pitted for the alternate tires and was then unable to put a quick lap together because it went checkered. It’s a shame because the guys have worked hard and would have been nice to show the cars potential. We have a good race car for tomorrow, so hopefully some luck finally comes our way and we can have a good result.”
