“I think [the motor issues] plagued us in qualifying, that’s why we started so far back. It’s just really disappointed because I felt like we had the truck to beat tonight. Our Ford F-150 was really fast tonight. I feel like I’m disappointed with fourth-place because I feel like we should have won. There were times during the race where I’d go a second and a half without power in the corners – the motor would just completely die. Then, going down the straightaways, it felt like I was even on six or seven cylinders at times – I would just watch people drive by. The whole race, it plagued us, and we couldn’t figure out what it was. I’m really disappointed with it – we have a championship team and we’re making championship runs, I’m just disappointed we couldn’t get the stage points we deserved, we had to come down and pit so many times, but disappointing – that’s the story of the day.”
