Talk about the green-white-checkered flag finish in today’s Active Pest Control 200…
“Brett (Moffitt) cleared him, and cleared him in perfect timing, by the time we got to Turn 1. Myatt (Snider) started to come down, and that’s the last thing I wanted to do was pile all of our teammates up – I believe we were all three-wide at that point. I lost my momentum, and the 18 got that huge run on us, so it’s easy to say now, but I shouldn’t have lifted. We just fought tight, really, really tight, from the second run on, from enter to center, and just couldn’t get the handling dialed-in tonight.”
