I think we were able to get through the first couple rounds without putting many laps on our tires and that really paid a reward as we got to the third round. The car was pretty good. The car wasn’t too far off. We didn’t make a mock qualifying run in practice, so it was a little bit of an unknown when you roll into qualifying here, but the guys did a good job of making the right adjustments to have something pretty close, to be able to carry a lot of speed and ultimately to be able to get the pole here. It’s important to win a pole here, to start up front is obviously safer, but you can also run your pace and a safer place on pit road as well, so I think when you think of that stuff it gives you an advantage going into tomorrow’s race, so hopefully we can turn that into a win.”]]> 0 CHEVY MENCS AT MARTINSVILLE 1: Qualifying Notes & Quotes Sun, 24 Mar 2019 00:21:04 +0000 WILLIAM BYRON, NO. 24 AXALTA CAMARO ZL1 – Qualified 6th REGARDING HIS OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW AFTER QUALIFYING SIXTH “I am kind of optimistic, but we have had a rough day.
