"It pretty obvious that we're struggling right now. The Target team has been working very hard and you just can't count us out. The good thing about this track is that it has 3 race lines and anything can happen at any given time and it doesn't really matter where you qualify. We'll battle our way to the finish line like we do every weekend."

"In this morning's practice we had a gearbox issue that we solved quickly for the afternoon practice. We worked on balance and I think our car race setup will be just fine. We might not be very strong in qualifying, but when it comes to race set up, this Target team has consistently given me a top notch car."
