ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 PREFERRED FREEZER SERVICES CHEVROLET:“It was a pretty good day, but it wasn’t the day I expected. I expected there to be more race running groups. I was a little surprised by how many qualifying sims there were today, given that today was the last full day of practice. At the end of the day, the car feels like it has pretty good speed in it and I’m fairly happy in traffic. We will be looking to make it a little bit better for Sunday evening and Monday. All things considered, I think all three drivers on the team feel pretty encouraged and we are looking forward to the power turning up tomorrow in the Chevy engine and seeing what we can get out of the cars.”

SPENCER PIGOT, NO. 21 AUTOGEEK CHEVROLET: “It was a good day. We did some qualifying sims and group running. In both situations, I thought that we made good improvements to the car. I’m overall happy with the progress we have made so far! I’m looking forward to a little more boost tomorrow to get ready for qualifying.”

ED JONES, No. 63 ED CARPENTER RACING SCUDERIA CHEVROLET:“It was a great day! To be quickest in overall and no-tow is a goal. More importantly, I think we made more gains with the handling of the car. As the condition have changed we’ve been able to keep up. We just have to keep adapting to the track changes for tomorrow and for qualifying. With the rain, the grip level may come down a bit so it’s all about optimizing the car for the track conditions.”
