“Not a bad qualifying run for our Alliance Truck Parts Ford Mustang,”
said Hornish. “The car was actually a little better than the driver
today – I got a little too aggressive going into Turns 3 & 4 on the
second lap – had a bit of wiggle and that cost us a
tenth of second. On the bright side starting third is a huge
improvement over our previous record here so we’ll take it and make the
most of it.”
