CONOR DALY, No. 20 BitNile Chevrolet: We were really good today. We made a change last week that I thought was good at the time, but we went back closer to where our teammates were and I felt great. We did almost 100 laps today, three full stints. It was the best practice session I’ve had here in years. We could slice and dice a little bit, which was nice. Everyone is going to feel great because it’s cool, but it seemed like we could keep pace and we could pass people, which is even more important. We’re in our window where we think the car is really good. Hopefully, we can keep that going.”

RINUS VEEKAY, No. 21 Bitcoin Racing Team Powered by BitNile Chevrolet: I feel very good. It was a good session! I feel very strong in traffic and was able to run very close to the other guys, as close as anyone could. I have good confidence for the race. We worked on pit stops too, those were good, and worked on in and out laps. First time pitting off of Turn 4 this month, so I had to get used to that, but I am all ready for the race now!”

ED CARPENTER, No. 33 Alzamend Neuro Chevrolet: The Alzamend Neuro Chevrolet feels really nice. We’re right where we need to be with the car that we need to go win this race. We went out with a plan of a couple of things we wanted to try and I told the guys when I stopped, I feel ready to go and I feel like the car is ready to go. I’m sure we’ll do another long run on Carb Day if we get the opportunity. We’ve seen this month that it’s a very moody race track right now, so we’ll take the data. If the car feels like it did just now, I don’t think we’ll mess around too long because we know we’re in a good spot.”
