“It was an okay day. I think we got the maximum of what we were able to do this weekend. We struggled with balance and didn’t seem to have the pace that a lot of other guys had around us, so I think today was kind of an overachievement for us. The car felt much better than yesterday, so we made slight improvements but still need to chip away at trying to beat some of these other guys.”
