“We were on a pole lap for the second event in a row, then it just snapped loose and we lost that tenth (of a second) we needed. It’s a bummer to come that close but a good effort by the 98 AutoNation team, nonetheless. The colder weather is definitely unique with both qualifying this late in the day, and racing here this late in the year. It goes both ways: the tires take a little longer to come up (to temperature) but there is so much downforce and grip that is favoring us. It’s actually better than when we were here in July.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
