Mac Tools U.S. Nationals
Worsham roars to No. 5 spot on day one
"We were definitely not shy about what we wanted to do there," Worsham said. "We went up there with an aggressive set-up, and we wanted to run right with the very best. As good as it was, it wasn't perfect, and tomorrow night I'm pretty sure we'll be shooting for something even lower. Actually, both of our teams went up there thinking 4.75 was the target number, and Jeff and the blue guys absolutely nailed it. To be No. 1 and No. 5 after the first session here, though, is huge and it really helps to set us up for the rest of a very long weekend.
"Usually, after Friday night you're half-way done with qualifying, but here in Indy it's just the first of five sessions, so there will be a lot of jockeying going on before this field is set. The truth is, though, that only two of the five runs are under the lights, so it's great to get a leg up on it on Friday night. It takes a lot of the pressure off going into Saturday. We're thrilled to run well for Mac Tools here, it's the obviously the biggest race of the year for them, and we've been a proud Mac Tools team for 11 years. They put on a great reception for us last night, in downtown Indy, and this was our way of paying them back for a really fun night!"
