Quotable:
“I’m feeling good going into race day. We’re going to go out there and keep doing what we’re doing. We’re definitely gaining ground. We got four qualifying bonus points so that’s definitely a plus, we just didn’t nail it on the night run. We were second-quickest the first run out, and second-quickest the last run out so we’re definitely headed in the right direction. Looking forward to race day tomorrow. Atlanta has always been good to us and hopefully it can be good to us tomorrow.”
