“We put ourselves in a deficit after qualifying – just got real loose – started 30th and drove to sixth after the first run. All-and-all I’m happy with this third-place, after this season. This Menards Ford F-150 was good, we just needed the track position, and I know we could have run with those guys there at the end. We didn’t come here to finish third, but this is huge for ThorSport Racing – congrats to my teammate (Ben Rhodes) – we needed this right before the Playoffs. We needed as many Playoff points as we could possibly get, to get ourselves into the Playoffs. There have been so many guys that have won, and we haven’t had the best season, and got ourselves in a hole. We’re just gonna go to Eldora, and recover from there.”
