I am down in Daytona and just finished our first practice session of the week. Our Con-way Ford F-150 was pretty good so we didn't run the entire session. It started out pretty loose but the guys made some good adjustments and I'm pleased with it. We've got another 50 minutes of practice later today, and our final practice tomorrow morning before we qualify tomorrow night. We go out first in qualifying so that will be interesting. It will be good to go early since I think the air will just get heavier with the dampness down here as it gets darker.
We've had some fun while we've been down here too. Last night I went to dinner with the team and after dinner we decided to play putt-putt golf. I beat the guys so they had to pay for my ice cream. It was a pretty wild night for us - ha ha.
I'm really looking forward to the 2009 season. This is a great team and I feel confident we're going to have a great year. We've always had fast trucks, but with a year of experience under my belt we are going to be a lot more competitive this year.
I better run since I'm going to go watch Cup practice for a while. Have a great week and be sure to watch our race on SPEED Friday night. Coverage starts at 7:30 p.m. eastern.
