We're trying to run together with our teammates and work with different people to see how our Team 7-Eleven car will be on race day. I don't want to sound repetitive, but we're just doing race stuff all day long and trying to find the best race package."

"Obviously, we're hard into our race preparation program and trying to understand what to do to get the Team 7-Eleven car comfortable at what speeds and in traffic. There wasn't a lot of traffic out there today, but we certainly tried to at least work with our other three teammates. I think we've got some work to do. But, hopefully we can have another good day tomorrow and put ourselves in a position to have the total package for race day." -AGR-
