Quote:

“We almost accomplished our goal of a top-10 finish tonight. If that caution didn’t come out with just a few laps to go, I think we could have done it. We fought a tight Tundra all weekend. We are making strides and I appreciate my entire ThorSport Racing team, and all their hard work. I think with a couple more changes to our intermediate program we’ll be where we need to be.”
