...the trick to the whole thing is to make sure that you have track position at the three-quarters mark, not closer to the end.

We've wrecked out of this race the last three times.
I wouldn't want to run a road course every weekend, but I wouldn't mind seeing one or two more on the schedule.
It's usually been a good track for us, and we were lucky we got a good qualifying spot (starting fifth) and just tried to keep our nose clean all night. It worked out pretty good.
I have fun when I go road racing. I like them. I wouldn't want to run a road course every weekend, but I wouldn't mind seeing one or two more on the schedule. I like them because it sort of breaks up the regular routine, and we've had good luck on them over the years.
They're as good as they've ever been. They're still competitive. Their retirement plans are based on their sons coming up. They want to spend time helping their careers, and I have a lot of respect for them.
I'm really sort of surprised at this run because we spent 98 percent of our time yesterday working on race setup and I got really comfortable with what I had there, ... Within the rules structure they allow you to do a few things for qualifying and the guys took advantage of that.
