“I feel really good. We went down the track almost every lap this weekend. Got beat out by four-thousandths of a second for the No. 1 qualifying spot, but hey, we’ll take it. We qualified in the top three and we’re going to get ready for tomorrow. The Matco Tools/U.S. Army/Toyota Top Fuel dragster is running real mean. I’m pumped; just ready to get after it and hopefully we can make it a good race day here in Brainerd.”
