From Leah:
It kind of feels a bit like Groundhog Day because once again we face Justin Ashley. We’ve been running into him a lot lately, it seems, whether it's first round or the final round or whatnot. But ultimately, what’s most important to us right now is getting in race-ready condition. We were putting the coals to it that last round, shooting for a high 3.60 run, and unfortunately, we had a massive issue which expired our run at the hit of the throttle. We’ve since found the issue, resolved the issue, and we’ll be back in performance-shape tomorrow. Coming off the trailer on Friday with that 3.78 gave us the baseline that we were looking for, so we will revert back to that, along with our cooler condition data for tomorrow. We’re ready to defend our 2019 Brainerd race win.
