“I think the track will come back to everyone on Sunday. Should be better track conditions than what we saw on Saturday. Good qualifying effort by the Make-A-Wish team. The car ran great when the conditions were good, but the sunny track with a little bit different prep on it is throwing everybody a curve. Hopefully tomorrow’s cool conditions will bring it back to us a little bit and we’ll make some good runs.”
