Misha Goikhberg: “It was good run. A very eventful session and very difficult to put a lap together. We had a red flag in their which always kind of kills the momentum of the session. That being said it created a good shootout there at the end. I don’t think I extracted everything out of the car, which means we have more for tomorrow. It’s going to be hot, but we’ve developed a setup to suit the heat and a slick circuit. It’s time to get GAINSCO Auto Insurance back on the podium and I think we’ve got the tools to do it.”
