Round 2: N/A
Firestone Fast Six: N/A
Qualified: 20th“We were really unlucky in our qualifying session. The team gave me a great car, which I think could have put me in the top-10 on the starting grid, but unfortunately a red flag was shown with two minutes to go. I was running 10th in my group before I pitted for the alternate tires and was then unable to put a quick lap together because it went checkered. It’s a shame because the guys have worked hard and would have been nice to show the cars potential. We have a good race car fortomorrow, so hopefully some luck finally comes our way and we can have a good result.”Fast facts:
