All about thanking K&N for all they do for this class, for this sport and a whole big pile of cash at the end of the rainbow and we found our way there. It's just a lot of fun. We have a chance to double up tomorrow. It adds more pressure but more fun for tomorrow. It's going to be a great day tomorrow."
