Quotable:
“We went three out of four in qualifying and have a consistent car. We may have to lean on it a little bit, or let this hotter weather come to this E.T. for the car. We did unload a brand new chassis this weekend at The Strip, and we feel, long-term, it’s the way to go. We’re just trying to get a handle on it right now. Four wide is a complete crap shoot. You can finish second twice and still leave with the trophy and that’s what we want to do.”
