Quote:

I had a lot of fun, and appreciate the opportunity. Today just wasn’t good enough. I feel like I’ve figured out where we were struggling in the race. We made some good swings at it. The guys on pit road did a good job, we were just flat out not good enough. We will learn from it, and come back at Chicago.”
