“We got to the point we were hoping to get to today. The NAPA AUTO PARTS team has done an amazing job and Andretti Autosport always comes with fantastic race cars here. It is hot but I feel good about it – we will see tomorrow. A lot is going to depend on the (qualifying) draw that we get. As we know the temperatures are going to sky rocket pretty quickly. Hopefully lady luck is on our side and we get an early run at it. Hopefully a clean run and get it done. You can’t be confident here. As soon as you get confident, things start to go sideways. We will close the loop on today and see what areas we can execute better tomorrow. There are always tiny little things you can find around here so we will make sure we analyze it tonight. You can’t be complacent. You got to attack every chance you get.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
