“I hope this is the weekend where we turn it around. Tough competition out there, you have people like Scrapper (Mike Salinas) running a 77, Steve ‘O’ (Torrence) qualified No. 1, my teammates are out there. We’ve got our work cut out for us but it feels really good to have four good qualifying laps and we’ll see what we can do on Sunday.”
