Sound Bites:

“We were pretty good. I felt like our Ohanafy Ford Mustang Dark Horse was a little bit on the tight side, but when we were in clean air it was good. This is still a work in progress. We’re trying to things organized so we’re all working together and getting the best out of each race. I’m proud of the speed we had. We ran with some good cars, so we’ll keep working at it and see what we’ve got when we get to Phoenix.” – Justin Haley, driver of the No. 51 Ohanafy Ford Mustang Dark Horse

“We weren’t too bad today. We just couldn’t quite get a handle on the balance of our N29 Capital Parners Ford Mustang Dark Horse. We were tight for the first half of the race, and then we somehow got it free and couldn’t really get back to somewhere in the middle. We had decent track position until someone came up in front of me and took the airway, then we just bobbled and smacked the wall out of turn four. I don’t know if that hurt something or if we just fell off at the end with older tires. I was just kind of hanging on there at the end. We’ll see what we can do to get better. The field so tight and I feel like we’re just a little bit away from being really good. Easier said than done, but I think if we can find a little something then we’ll be in good shape.” Kaz Grala, driver of the No. 15 N29 Capital Partners Ford Mustang Dark Horse
