There’s been a lot of prep and lead time and expectations for this one. You get to drive the car a lot, you get to have some fantastic racing. Knock on wood that we’ve done as much as we can as a group between Cadillac, GM and Chip Ganassi Racing that we can make it to the win and be fighting for the win.””
