“We had a good day. We have been having good days. I keep saying we have a good race car and I feel we still have a good race car. We don’t know what everybody else has until race day but I’m pretty comfortable. I’ve been comfortable since I got here this year. We will see.”

 Taylor Kiel – President, Arrow McLaren SP

“Honestly, we are happy to get that session out of the way. It’s nerve-racking being so close to the event and with it being the final session. We are really happy with where the Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolets are at. All three cars have shown really good race pace. We ticked off a list of things we needed to do from a pit stop perspective and from a car reliability perspective, so we are feeling really good heading into Sunday. Full focus on the race.”
