Quote:

“Our night obviously didn’t start off very good, we were off a little bit. I just told Joe (Shear Jr.) ‘I don’t care what you change, just do something big.’ We were struggling to run in the top-10, so hats off to Joe and my guys for working on it all night long. I think toward the middle part of the race we were the fastest truck and drove to the lead and thought we were in good shape. Then, just caution after caution after caution. I struggled on restarts tonight, I’ve got some work to do there, but overall it ended up being a decent night for us.”
