Worsham prior to Brainerd:

"I feel like we made some progress in Sonoma with solid qualifying passes; it was nice to go down the track. We still lost in the first round, but I thought we made some moves in the right direction so maybe we are starting to gain on it. Everybody is still working as hard as they can, and we all want to make sure we get a spot in the countdown. We have three races left in the regular season so it's starting to be crunch time."
