“Our Matco ‘Tools for the Cause’ car went down the track every run and it’s great to have a consistent race car. We have a tough first-round match-up with Doug Kalitta and the ‘tool wars’ here in Texas. It’s always a fierce battle, but we look forward to those every week. We’re getting better with every run, and I like our chances in the heat tomorrow.”
