Tony Cotman, Team Manager, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It was a short day for us and any time you lose track time that was potentially valuable, it isn't very good. We have to hope for some good weather tomorrow so we can shake down both of our Klein Tools/Jim Beam cars. The bright side of things is that we can look at our teammates data, but you always want to try some things yourself to prove you can do it."
