Ryan Preece has repeatedly said he wasn’t worried about qualifying for the Daytona 500 despite not having a charter this season.
Preeces # 37 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet was named this season open car when Todd Braun took over the charter elsewhere. Braun had the rights to the charter that JTG had used over the past few seasons.
Wednesday night, Preece qualified for the 63rd annual Daytona 500 by hitting the fastest speed of the eight open cars. When asked about the situation, Preece revealed that the worst part of his day had nothing to do with what had happened on the track.
« I think the most stressful thing of the day was when we were at the start and we were was 15 minutes late (due to a power outage) and realized I was wearing the wrong fire suit, « Preece said. “So I had to walk about half a mile and change my suit. That was the most stressful thing I did today. “
Although Preece wasn’t worried, he admitted that things were tense in the team. However, when opening the workout earlier in the day, confidence was found in the speed of the car when driving alone. Preece was the fastest of the open cars in practice.
« I wasn’t worried, » he said. “I said it a week ago on media day – my entire racing career was pretty much full of moments like this. So this is not another day for me. “
Now in the race, Preece will earn his official starting place by taking part in the first duel on Thursday evening.
» We will be racing, « said Preece of the plan. « We’re going to be driving hard and it pays points so we have to try to get ourselves into a good position on the street circuit next week. »
Preece isn’t sure about the team’s situation in terms of sponsorship for this season but said I planned to show up every week and hope it all comes together.
