"We had the speed to get it done tonight. We had a really good Protect The Harvest Ford F-150. That's all we had. It just wasn't meant to be. I'm really proud of this year. We're not running for a championship next week but it wasn't for lack of effort. These guys have come a long way, and I'm proud of everyone."

"We had very good speed. We drove through a few [positions] at the beginning of the race, and took two tires, driving to second and running the leader down. When we came down pit road later to put four tires on, we just couldn't get the right front off and lost seven or eight spots. It buried us, and then none of the lanes would go our way to end the night. All in all, we'll go to race for a win at Homestead in the Menards Ford F-150. Nothing to hang our head on too bad. We've got one more - we're going to go get a trophy at Homestead."

"It wasn't a very good day for our Carolina Nut Co. Ford F-150. Not what we wanted to see at the end of the race. We struggled all day long with just keeping the truck turning without unhooking the rear end. A little disappointing that we didn't have the speed that we needed, but I think we got some great notes to try and come back better, faster and strong for tracks like and similar to this. We're going to take the positives that we can from it and move on, but overall just a disappointing run for our team today."

"All the guys from the Tenda Ford F-150 team worked really hard to get the truck back out and running after we had some issues mid-race. It just wasn't meant to be today but it wasn't for lack of effort. We're setting our eyes on Homestead next week, looking to lock in the Rookie of the Year title and a win."
