Quotables:
Ben Rhodes on what it feels like to get his third Gander Truck Series victory: “The win feels awesome. I feel like I can breathe now and it’s like a big burden is off of my shoulders. There’s a lot of guys on this team that it is their first win – my mechanics, crew chief – and I’m proud and honored to be able to give them that win.”
Crew Chief Matt Noyce on his first career win at a historic track: “It’s pretty exciting especially to get your first career win at a race where we are kind of equalized with everyone. Where a lot of these guys raced or crew chief’s calling their first race here at Darlington. I always thought this place was so cool growing up watching races and what the Southern 500 means, so to get my first win here as a crew chief is pretty special.”
