“We’re feeling good. We’re making gains and getting better and better. We wanted to get the No. 1 qualifying spot, but that will have to wait until next year. Tomorrow is a new day. It’s going to be just like today. It’s going to be tricky out here at Vegas with the bright sun. We’re coming on and let’s see if tomorrow can be our day. We’ll give it all we got and we want to go some rounds.”
