Sound Bites:

“I started in the back and went a lap down early, and then got the Lucky Dog and came back to 11th. Just never really got a handle on the balance all weekend. Pretty loose in. We need to go back and definitely do our homework on this place. It’s tough, it’s a new place, but we’re a better race team than we showed all weekend. Extremely grateful for the fan support to be able to allow us the opportunity to get into the All-Star Race. It was a fun weekend overall, just kind of struggled all weekend. Soft tires seemed to be better for our car than the hard tire. But, yeah, good time overall and super grateful.” – Noah Gragson, driver of the No. 10 Mustang Dark Horse

“I don’t know, we had a really good practice, we were loose in qualifying and that kind of translated to the first run. The boys on pit road had a great pit stop and got us some track position. I think the tire compound tightened us up a little bit and we were better. We still needed to be a little bit tighter. I was doing everything I could, without a doubt. I really found a lot in (turns) one and two. I was fast in (turns) one and two, but just couldn’t quite put together (turns) three and four to make a charge at them. From where we started, we knew it would be tough, but all in all it was just a great effort. Everybody at Stewart-Haas Racing, Rodney (Childers, crew chief), this whole 4 team, Harrison’s for all they do. I hate to not be in it (the All-Star Race), but we were probably the whole show right there for how it looked. I was doing everything I could, I just couldn’t quite get to the 23 (Bubba Wallace, second-place finisher). The last couple of laps, I got a little bit better, but it would’ve been hard to pass him without really roughing him up.” – Josh Berry, driver of the No. 4 Harrison’s Ford Mustang Dark Horse

“We just didn’t really have the short-run speed. It seemed like once we got single-filed out, it was hard unless you were really, really good to go forward. On the normal tire, we were really, really loose at the start, and on the soft tire we were really, really tight. I felt like if the race was 100-lap runs, we would’ve been alright. We were pretty good on the long runs, we just didn’t quite have it on the short runs. We’ve just got to do a better job. Especially this weekend, it’s just a little tough having different tires, but I need to do a better job just understanding from practice kind of what I need for the short run versus the long run. Hated it for all of us. We’ve been having really, really good speed here lately, so I hope this wasn’t a momentum killer. But overall, I’m thankful for HighPoint. I wish we could’ve gotten them a little better chance in the All-Star Race, but we’ll just go to the Coke 600 next week and see what we can do.” – Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 14 Ford Mustang Dark Horse

“We just needed a better balance, needed better track position, kind of everything. I don’t know, I guess we just didn’t have what it took to be in the All-Start Race today.” – Ryan Preece, driver of the No. 41 Ford Mustang Dark Horse
