“The track conditions obviously have been a little bit tricky this weekend but I think we’ve proven time and time again that (crew chief) Dickie Venables does a great job with coming out and swinging hard on Sunday, diving into the race track and doing what we need to do. The weather played a part of this (qualifying position). Yesterday with the rain coming in and everything getting cool, and then today missing out on Q4 and having to run up there really quick on Q3 after it rained. Looking ahead to tomorrow, race day conditions, we’ll go back to what we’ve been running the last couple of races. We feel like we have a pretty good tune-up. Lane choice is going to be huge tomorrow. Obviously, we’re not going to have lane choice with TJ and that right lane has been tricky. We’ll have to take that into consideration and pull it back a little bit but it is what it is, that’s how the cards fell this weekend. They’ll have lane choice and we’ll see what we can do with that right lane.”
