Friday night finds KJ sitting fifth
“Our first run was solid, just the way you want to get the weekend started. We had a good 60-foot time, our ACDelco Cobalt went straight, and even with a slight problem with a vacuum pump battery, we were right near the top of the page.
“We had our sights set on getting the pole, but unfortunately, the track didn’t give us what we wanted in the evening session. We knew the surface had cooled by 30 degrees after the sun went down, so we threw two or three different things at it in anticipation of its being better. We used data from our test session here earlier in the year, but the rubber that was on the track in January and what we ran on today were two completely different types. As a result, it just didn’t hold. Fortunately, the rest of the weekend is going to be in sunshine, so we’ll regroup and get ourselves ready for race day.”
