Quote:

“I thought we had a top 10 finish working during the first half of this race. We battled a lot of adversity through some contact with other competitors, and cut a right front tire at the end of the first stage. We don’t know what happened, but it wouldn’t turn in the center of the corner. My guys worked really hard and we all deserved a better finish. We’ll keep fighting to keep knocking off those top 10 finishes.”
