“We started all the way back in ninth for Race 1 after losing our fast lap in qualifying. We were definitely looking to make up some spots, and we did that and made some passes on some open spots. I had a run on Neil [Alberico] in the middle of the race, but he picked it up and ran away. Then everything kind of settled into a nice rhythm, and we just stayed in that seventh place for the rest of the race. The team did a good job with the cars though and we’re looking forward to tomorrow.”
