First Round Matchup: Tim Wilkerson

Quotable: “We had a great car in qualifying. We made three runs down the track in this Global Electronic Technology Camry, with two in the 4.0 second range. I messed up on that last run and got the car out of the groove. Part of being a rookie. We still have lane choice in round one and have some information from that run that we can use. I feel good about tomorrow.”
