Quotable:
“I couldn’t be happier with the way today went. We made two really strong runs and any time you close qualifying with your best run of the weekend its a good feeling. The last two races, we have definitely been going in the direction where we need to be at. We’re making a move. Right now, our Matco Tools/U.S. Army car and Tony’s U.S. Army car are very similar and you saw that in Q4. It’s like they are identical now, so we are just going to lean on each other. The teams have been bouncing ideas around and it’s making both of our cars make great steps forward. That’s just going to continue to get in the realm where we need to be at. We’ve been really good here in even years – winning 2012, 2014, 2016 – so we’re just going to take it one round at a time tomorrow and see if can transition that previous successful into tomorrow.”
