Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Ford Performance Ford Mustang:
“I felt like we had a really good car tonight – I was able to drive from the back to the front numerous times and just kept getting shuffled back. It’s unfortunate that our night got ended early, because I think we had a really good chance at bringing home a win. Wrecks like this are just part of superspeedway racing, so we’ll regroup and get back after it next week at Kentucky.”
