Worsham prior to Sonoma:

"We definitely are not having the summer we all expected, but we continue to work as hard as we can to get back on track. We are all as focused and determined as ever to get our performance back to what we all know we are capable of achieving, and that has to start with qualifying. If we can get back to qualifying in the top half of the field that will be a good first step."
