ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 PREFERRED FREEZER SERVICES CHEVROLET: The biggest thing we wanted for today was to get out in more race-like conditions. I feel good about the data we got and the changes we made in order to see improvements on the car! It definitely looked like a hard session for everyone, which is a good thing in my eyes. The temperature was a big factor in making today’s session hard.  We could always use more practice but I think we have had a really great week and a half of preparation. I’m really happy with the day we had and I’m ready to line us all up and get the race going!”

SPENCER PIGOT, NO. 21 AUTOGEEK CHEVROLET “It was a pretty good session today! It was difficult out there with today’s conditions but it was more representative of what race day is going to look like. We’ve learned a lot over the past few weeks. We will go through everything one more time and make our best decisions for the race!”

ED JONES, No. 63 ED CARPENTER RACING SCUDERIA CHEVROLET: It was a tough session. After the rain, the track conditions were a little different. Depending on the conditions on Sunday we will decide what to do next. We still did a good number of laps and good pit stops which is good practice for race day. Hopefully today was tougher than how it is going to feel on race day!”
