“It was good and important for us to get down the track on the last lap. The first qualifying round we had a little mishap. It dropped a hole so we had to shut off. We just need to make a clean lap down the track. It’s going to be warmer tomorrow and it’s anyone’s game. We got Doug Kalitta and that’s a good matchup. We need to try to take him out to help ourselves and our teammate, Leah (Pruett), in the points. That’s our main focus. To go down the track in the first round. We have to make a good, consistent lap. I know our Matco boys will keep our heads down and step it up. It’s a new day and we’re excited.”
