“That result is brutal for sure. We ran up front all night until that last stage. We had two right rears go down along with a right front and just didn’t have enough time to recover. I’ve got to thank everybody for the support and thank my guys for all the hard work they put in. We’ll keep on digging on move on to Kansas next week.”
