Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Ford Performance Ford Mustang:
“It felt really good to get back in the top-five this weekend after a string of bad luck struck us the last couple of weeks. Our No. 98 Ford Performance team worked really hard to get us back up front and Boswell made some great calls to gain us track position to line us up for the run we had there at the end. I wish we had a little more, but we will go on to Loudon and hopefully have another good run.”
