Talk about consistency. First round we ran another 3.92 like we did in qualifying. We were the only team in Funny Car to make it down the track in the 3-second zone every time, so we definitely had something for them. That right lane's a little tricky, it's got a bump, but these guys made it happen and we were able to make another full run. I had a good light and everything, we just didn't have enough at the top end unfortunately so that was the end of our day. We're going to stay and test Monday, get this Patrón Camry a little bit quicker, and get ready for Vegas.
