Quotable:
“We’re definitely getting to where we want to be at. We learned a lot of stuff in the off-season. You never get somewhere without trying. That’s our main focus. A lot of people forget that and want instant results. I know all the work that my team has done and I’ve got all the confidence in these Matco Tools/Toyota guys. We’re doing this one step at a time and tomorrow we’re just going to try to race smart and go rounds. That’s our game-plan, go rounds tomorrow. (In racing teammate Leah Pritchett) It’s just another competitor. You’ve got to race them.”
