"I'm so lucky to be able to drive this race car. There's a lot to be said about adapting to conditions, adapting to race tracks, and adapting run to run. These are the most volatile cars, but they're also the most meticulous. They've got to be babied at times, but today (Rahn) Tobler really showed the championship form we've had for the past couple of years when we ran a 96 (3.967) in the heat of the day and no one else went down. I was smiling the whole time the 'chutes were out and I got on the radio and said 'that's my boy, Tobler!'
"Tomorrow is going to bring conditions that we really went to the six-disc (clutch) for. It's going to be fast, it's going to be cool out and we never felt like we could run as good as the six-disc cars did in those conditions. I'm really excited to be able to go up there tomorrow and see what Tobler has in store for us. We won this race last year, and we'll see if we can do that again tomorrow."
