ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 PREFERRED FREEZER SERVICES CHEVROLET:It was a decent day. It felt a little more like May today in practice. Everything went exactly to script and all the changes we made, we were pretty happy with. Today was a good exploration day! In the end, we made progress. We had some peaks and valleys throughout the day, but that’s what you have to deal with in May. It’s what makes it so challenging on track! Overall, I think things are working really well for the team. I feel pretty good about the progress we are making, but there is still a lot of work to do. We will be working more towards speed as we get closer to the weekend.”

SPENCER PIGOT, NO. 21 AUTOGEEK CHEVROLET “It was another good day. We made a lot of improvements to the car. In traffic, we made the car a lot better which is always positive. We were able to put up some good lap times and pass quite a few cars. So far, so good in practice!”

ED JONES, No. 63 ED CARPENTER RACING SCUDERIA CHEVROLET: “Another positive day! Made some changes, made some improvements. We also found some elements that didn’t work. It’s all part of the learning process, but I think we are going in the right direction.”
