“We’ve had a pretty good race car through qualifying, even with the difficult race track conditions. The guys have done a great job adapting and figuring it out and the performance has improved every run. I feel confident going into tomorrow. Each run we get better and better so it would be nice to do that four more times tomorrow.”
