“We’re excited for race day. We really wanted another shot at this track here at Houston given that we only had one qualifying run. It’s always good to get at least two runs in and to run in both lanes. We’ve had a great race car all year long. I’m super pumped and proud of all my Matco guys. They’re working extremely hard and it’s showing on the race track. We’re looking forward to tomorrow. It’s going to be overcast and cloudy and the track here at Houston is really, really good. We will take it one round at a time. We start from the No. 3 spot, so tomorrow we want a long day late into the afternoon.”
