“We definitely made steps in the right direction today. That’s what we’ve been working for. That last run should have been our Q3 run. It was the same as (what) we ran earlier, but we had to make it again, because the parachutes came out. I’m really proud of my team, because things have been fighting us this weekend. That’s what I love about this team; there is no quit in them. We are going to keep on pushing. Tomorrow is race day and we just put down a solid lap that we can build off of and we know we can go better. We’re locked and loaded.”
