“We’re making strides here in Norwalk. We qualified sixth, and sure we wanted to do better than that, but we’re moving in the right direction. We had a really good 60-foot number on that last lap, and we just need to slow it down a little bit after that. I feel good going into tomorrow. We’ll make a couple of little changes and be ready for tomorrow. We have Doug Kalitta in E1, and that’s a monster matchup; it’s ‘the tool wars,’ and we’re here in the hometown track of Matco Tools, and we have a lot of great support and we’re super stoked for a good, long race day.”
