ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 PREFERRED FREEZER SERVICES CHEVROLET:“It was a pretty efficient session. We got a lot of laps in. We had a long list of things we wanted to do to validate the car that we had tested earlier in the week. We worked through a few really good changes and we feel really good about the car. Today was a session where the time sheets don’t matter very much because its more about what you can do in traffic and how comfortable you are on the track. You need something that you can race with for 500 miles. I’m feeling good and looking forward to Carb Day!”

SPENCER PIGOT, NO. 21 AUTOGEEK CHEVROLET “It was good to get back to race running today and start to work towards next weekend.  We tried a few things today and hopefully we put it all together to make a really good race car.”

ED JONES, No. 63 ED CARPENTER RACING SCUDERIA CHEVROLET: “It was good to have today’s practice session to work through a long list of ideas and changes. We were not able get our race car quite how we want it yet, but the positive news is we know where we need to make adjustments. We’ll improve the car over the next few days and will be ready to go again for Carb Day practice on Friday.”
