Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Nutri Chomps Ford Mustang:
“We didn’t qualify where we wanted to and fought dirty air while we were in the pack. We were way loose with the air and even when we weren’t in that dirty air, the car was still way loose. Then we ended up getting spun out which set us back a little bit, but the No. 98 Nutri Chomps Ford team made some adjustments and it allowed me to drive all the way back up to seventh. We will take that after the struggles we had and will move on to Iowa next week where I think we will be the one to beat.”
