Her only No. 1 qualifier of the season happened at Brainerd International Raceway at the Lucas Oil Nationals at Brainerd, Minnesota.

“We came off a test session prior to Dallas and felt like we made some strides in the right direction,” said Enders. “We proved it in Dallas, but unfortunately, [we] had a parts failure and lost second round. Coming here had the same confidence. After the first session, Jeg (Coughlin, teammate) was No. 1 and I was No. 2. We went out and my crew chief said on the radio if we all do our job we can go to the pole and sure enough we all did our job and went to the pole.”
