Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Ford Performance Ford Mustang:
“Man, I’m just frustrated because after yesterday I felt this was the best car we have had heading into the race. We were able to get towards the front pretty quickly after starting at the rear. I pushed it too hard at the end of stage two fighting for a stage point and it cost us. We just couldn’t catch a break and get a caution when we needed it there at the end. Our Ford Performance Mustang was much better than a 16th place car.”
