Quotable:
“Epping has always been a really good event for our Matco Tools/Toyota team. I’m looking forward to going out there and getting after it in qualifying. We’ll have a little heat and temperature this weekend, and we run well in those conditions. The track surface is phenomenal; it always yields good E.T.s, even when it’s hot. The fans there are fantastic. We want to do well at this race to get some momentum going heading into the Western Swing.”
