Alexis DeJoria, Driver It's been a bit of a rough weekend for me. I'm fighting a possible case of walking pneumonia. We'll see when I get home and talk to the doctor but I definitely haven't been feeling great this weekend so I've been trying to be extra strong and do my job, and I think I did a good job. 

We had a solid start; made three good, consistent passes in qualifying. On race day we got a round win, and almost a second round win. We're strong right now and I'm excited for the next race. I've got a great team. Who needs luck when you've got a group like this.
