This Caterpillar car we brought out here is probably the best piece we have in the shop and the numbers prove just that.

The back of the car jumped up on me a bit there, but it was a good run. I wish we could've held on to the pole, but I'll take the top-five start and I just can't wait to get the show on the road tomorrow.

Our mile-and-a-half program has improved a good bit this year compared to last year.

We've run up around the front at most of the intermediate tracks -- it just seems like something always strikes at some point to derail us from maintaining those strong runs, but our intermediate cars are better and stronger.
