Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Ford Performance Ford Mustang:
“New Hampshire is a pretty demanding race track and we weren’t giving each other much room battling for position, so I was having fun out there. It feels good to get our Ford Performance Mustang back towards the front of the field where it belongs. We probably should have had a top-five today, but we’ll keep working and head to Iowa next week to see if we can do better.”
