AUSTIN, TALK ABOUT YOUR RUN TONIGHT AT OXFORD.
It was a pretty rough night considering we pitted on lap 20 or 30 and went right to the back. Trying to march to the front was a battle in itself. Every time we’d pass a couple cars, there’d be a slow car on the outside. We just rode around for half the race.
Towards the end, people started coming back to us. I was pretty happy with the crew. We had a tough day. We had some distributor problems. The handling could have been better, but we got a top-10 and that’s good.
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO FINISH IN THE TOP-10 YET AGAIN?
I know we’re top-10 material. It can only get better from this. Sure, there will be bad days at some point, but I’m still pretty encouraged right now.
