“With each run, I get more comfortable, and it feels more natural in this Mopar Dodge. This team is doing such a great job. We have a great race car, and I’m just looking forward to tomorrow. It’s been a long time since I’ve been out here on a race day Sunday. I’ve been at home watching on the computer on NHRA.tv and FOX, and now we get to do it for real and make our mark.”
