“It was a decent race. We just needed strategy to work out better there at the end. I believe we had a top-six car all day and that’s where we ran most of the day. A huge shout out to all of my guys. We’ve have had a rough few weeks and I’m glad we can put all of that behind us. We will carry this momentum into next weekend for the first round of the Playoffs at Richmond and do our best to get locked into the Round of 8.”
