"I think Team 7-Eleven is ready. You'll never feel like you're quite there, but we've got plenty of information. Now we just need to sit down and analyze it with a clear head. It's been a stressful 10 days for everybody and we all need a rest. But, I'm happy. It's been a great team effort. Everybody at AGR has done a great job and so has everyone at Honda. We feel we're ready. I guess it's almost show-time."

"We ended up about a day late with our program. We were hoping to be done Friday, but Bryan's rear suspension failure put us behind on a few things that the drivers wanted to try. But, we feel comfortable that we've got good race cars and now we'll move on to preparing the primary cars. Everyone has worked so well together this month; hats off to everybody at AGR for really putting a solid month together so far."
