How was your qualifying lap?

“It didn’t feel terrible. Everyone is picking up, so you feel like you’re faster just a little bit on the free side to go as fast as we want, I guess. I thought we would have been a little bit better than that. I think I have a good race car. I think we’ll be fine when the race starts.”

Why is the track so slick?

“There’s not as much rubber down as last time. We had a whole test and there’s just not as much. The groove hasn’t widened out, so hopefully the truck race helps that.”
