Laps in the #1T car: 18 laps

"We had some gremlins to deal with today so we didn't get much track time. I took the back up car out in the afternoon but I didn't feel it was as fast as the primary. It wasn't our best day but it's better to deal with those issues now than later in the month."

#10 Darren Manning
Best Practice Speed: 218.596 mph (41.1719 seconds)
Laps run in #10 car: 69 laps
Position at end of the day: 13th

"We had a really good test day today. I'm happy with the progress we've made and with the car. We went through a lot of back to back set up changes today and I found plenty of little bits that I liked. We've got 3 more days to start to trim out the car for qualifying. There will be more rubber down then and we can start working on our qualifying runs."
