“We just need to go out and race tomorrow after we didn’t get the run we wanted today. We weren’t trying to run an 87, we were trying to run an 83 or an 82. The good news is we made it down the racetrack and we see areas where we can pick it up. Mark (Oswald), Brad (Mason) and Mike (Green) are up there working hard to get our car back to where it’s happy. That’s the whole thing, getting everything happy, and we’re getting everything close to it. We’re just trying to break through, and once we get that breakthrough, we’ll get in that window where we know we should be at. We’ve got Mike Salinas in the first round tomorrow and we’ll have to do what we do on race day and go out there for a first-round win. We’ll focus on the first round and we’ll just take it from there.”
