Toyota Racing – NCS Daytona Qualifying Quotes – Jimmie Johnson – 02.14.24

JIMMIE JOHNSON, No. 84 Carvana Toyota Camry XSE, LEGACY MOTOR CLUB

Can you talk about your qualifying lap?

“I had higher expectations for sure, but we are lumped right there with the other Toyotas. The 43 (Erik Jones) car got a little more out of it, so I wish we had a bit more out of ours, but it is what it is. We will go out and race hard tomorrow night and try to make the 500.”

How do you approach tomorrow?

“I’ve never been in this position, so I don’t know. I came down here mentally prepared to race my way in if that was required. I’m well studied. I spent a lot of time working on the environment of the Duels and the way the race will unfold. Just get out there and race hard and see how it unfolds.”

Are you nervous?

“Of course. Much more nervous now. I thought we were going to be in a little bit better position than this, but it is what it is. We will go to work.”
