Scott McLaughlin in the No.3 Good Ranchers Team Penske Chevrolet says it was a pretty good day for the Thirsty Three’s at the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Friday.

Speaking after setting a time of 01:07.6325s the New Zealander said:

Surprisingly, not as much as we thought (in a track change). Like, it has changed a little bit for sure, but it’s still grippy. I remember that. We had a full day of testing here before we got on, so the track was really rubbered up at this point of the weekend. For us, in the Good Ranchers Chevy, it feels good. The car just gets grippier and better and better as the rubber goes down. We were one of the last one to run tires there, so ultimately, the car has been good all session. I think we’re right there and we’ll see what we have later in the weekend.”

“Pretty good day in the Good Ranchers Chevy. The car was pretty hooked up from the get-go. Really good on reds when we turned it on. The track is getting faster and faster and I think it’s sort of coming to our car a little bit. More to come tomorrow.”
