“Fifteenth is not where we wanted to qualify, but the rain just threw us off here at the U.S. Nationals. We really wanted to get our two runs in today which didn’t happen, but you know what, we made the show. We’re going to have a tough first round with my good friend, my ‘brother from another mother,’ Steve Torrence, but we’re looking forward to that challenge, that set-up, and we are going to go out there and give it all we’ve got. It’s the U.S. Nationals and it’s game day tomorrow. Anything can happen and we’re definitely going to throw our best blow out to keep those Goodyears hooked up and try to throw a big E.T. up on the board.”
