Justin Bolton, driver of the No. 10 Get Busch Delivered! Ford Mustang:          

 

“Had no grip for the first 20 laps of a run, but after that our Get Busch Delivered! Ford Mustang could start moving. Unfortunately, we lacked in qualifying and the whole race was short run after short run. Sometimes you’re the bug, and sometimes you’re the windshield. We’ll look into the areas we lacked and get better."

 

Dylan Duval, driver of the No. 41 Abruzzi Racewear U.S.A. Ford Mustang:

 

“Frustrating night, for sure. We had a really good Abruzzi Racewear U.S.A. Ford Mustang. It took about 20 laps to come in, but after that it was on rails. Got spun out early and managed to come through the field and get up into the top-15 before getting spun out again. Thankfully, we avoided the late-race crashes to come home with a 22nd-place finish. Not exactly what we were hoping for, since I think we had a good shot at a top-10, but it could’ve been worse. Looking forward to getting some of this bad luck behind us so we can start making up points.”
