Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Ford Performance Ford Mustang:
“We had a really fast Ford Performance Mustang. I know I got tagged in the left rear by Bell but at the same time it felt like the 0 car was going to put me in the fence regardless. These last three races I feel like we have been the car to beat and all three slipped away due to stuff out of our control. It is encouraging that we finished third but we should be locked into Homestead and instead we are two points back.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
