Quotable: “It was a pathetic day. We missed it bad on the No. 88 Denali Aire / Menards Tundra. It seemed like track position was something but the guys up front nailed it on their setup and we were terrible at the end of the day. We’ll go onto Richmond and go from there.” – Matt Crafton

Quotable: “Overall it was a solid day. We seemed to have a top 10 Champion Power Equipment / Curb Records Tundra all day. Nothing to get up there and compete for a win with the No. 51 (Truex) and our teammate (Rhodes). We made the most of it. Not everything we wanted going into the race but I’m happy coming out of here P. 6.” – Grant Enfinger

Quotable: “Early in the race, I had an issue of getting it into fourth gear, and missed a shift early on and really didn’t think anything of it. I had clean shifts afterwards, and then just missed it. Bummer for my guys. That is as close as I’ve been at Bristol to winning here and it was on the dirt, so they gave me a great Bombardier Tundra. I’m just a little angry at myself. I think I could have brought them home a trophy, but big picture, I know the 51 (Truex) is kind of doing their thing, but for the overall championship for us, this is a huge race. I know that a few of our competitors had a bad day. At the end of the day, still really solid. We came here and did exactly what we said we wanted to do. We hit all of our goals, just sucks to be the first loser.” – Ben Rhodes
