It's been a strange day for a lot of teams out here and definitely upsetting for the Patrón team. We lost first round to our teammate, JR Todd. We're going to stay and test on Monday. We really need to get this hot rod back up on top. We need consistent fast runs and to get back in the 0.80s. We plan to accomplish that on Monday and we'll be ready for Gainesville.
