“You know, overall we just got beat, it’s as simple as that. Everyone standing behind me worked their tails off and deserved to be in the playoffs. We brought a winning combination to two or three races and you know, the stars didn’t align for us to get a win. We had 16 chances overall, and I’m proud of the effort. We had some really solid finishes. We didn’t qualify well at times and we didn’t finish off races like we needed to. Therefore, we fought track position issues at times this year. But we were contenders, and that’s what we were tonight. We brought her home fifth and we’re still going to try and win races.”
