We picked up where we left off in Pomona here in Phoenix. We ran really well during both Friday sessions which landed us in the No. 3 spot. Today we dropped down one spot going into our last run of the day but we had another consistent run with that 4.06, so I’m happy. We race Jeff Arend tomorrow in the first round. I’m excited to be qualified in the top half of the field again for the second weekend in a row, and to have picked up two bonus points during qualifying for having the third quickest car of the session during both Q2 and Q4.

Things are getting better for the Patrón XO Cafe team. They were getting better towards the end of last year and of course, we made that good run at Pomona [3.997-seconds], and we’re trying to build off of that. I think we still have a long ways to go to get where we need to be, but we have a car that we can compete with and a car that can win races. Everyone on the team is working well together- the chemistry between the guys is really rolling and that right there breeds success. I’m happy with the progress that we’re making, and we’re definitely off to a good start.
