We were good off the truck. We made good adjustments throughout the day and found a nice balance. The car is handling well and has speed on the long runs. We were really close to making the Top-12. The car is really good in race trim. We’ve had tough luck on short tracks this year. I think we will turn it around with a great finish tomorrow.”
