“Pomona sure hasn’t been good to us during qualifying. We’ve been fighting some issues here and we need to find out what it is. We have some electrical problems to work through. We brought our backup car out of the trailer for this weekend and it’s been fighting us. We had something just shut off when we were backing up on the burnout for the Q3 lap. We were really looking forward to that run to try and step up and get a much better qualifying position. Those things happen and it’s best it didn’t happen on race day. I trust these Matco boys. We’ll be here tonight working hard and late and we’ll get this thing ready for race day and go up against Steve Torrence. That’s a super tough first round, but we’ll go after it.”
