"It's good to be working in race mode. With qualifying behind us, we're just trying to feel it out and see what changes we need to make on the Team 7-Eleven car for the race. We tried to run with our teammates to see how the car would behave, and we're going to keep doing it that way from now until race day."

"This was our first day of working on race setup with the Team 7-Eleven car. Bryan and Dario had done some work for us earlier in the week, so we had a good starting point. Tony was comfortable straight-away. We're really just working on the nuances of the race setup; just getting the basics covered at this point. Then, we'll do some final prep, hopefully on Wednesday and Thursday. It was a good day all the way around." -AGR-
