On the cancellation of the qualifying session... "This was really not good for me personally. I honestly think we had a much better car than ninth on the grid.

"It's been such an up and down season for me and things were going well here. A "Fast Five" start here would not have surprised me. But it is what it is. It's so hard to pass here and I'm behind a bunch of guys who are no slackers. I need to get a great start, keep focused, and bring it home at the end."
