“We definitely wanted to qualify higher but this weekend has been tricky. The car was running in the mid-to-high-3.70 range, and I’m looking at the crew chiefs in the lounge and they’re doing what they do. I have confidence in this Matco team. The track is good. It’s Four-Wide, and tomorrow is race day. We’re happy with the 60-foot times. We feel we have a good hold on things, and there’s a lot more left in the tank. We’ll squeeze on it. We’re up against a tough group with Brittany Force, the No. 1 qualifier, and Justin Ashley, and we’re going to give it our all and make it do what it do. We had so much fun with our Matco distributors today, and TRD is giving us great data and information, and we’ll utilize that for race day and go out and have some fun. It’s Four-Wide, baby!”
