AUSTIN CINDRIC, No. 2 Menards/Moen Ford Mustang Dark Horse – THERE’S NEVER A GOOD TIME FOR THIS TO HAPPEN, BUT AT LEAST IT HAPPENED IN PRACTICE. “We certainly weren’t one of the only teams to have tire issues, but it definitely seems like there are some limitations. It was a good lesson to learn maybe before the race, but there’s a lot of work for the team to get ready for qualifying tomorrow. It’s unfortunate, but I’m glad we’ve got time to get one ready for qualifying.”

THE TEAM IS GOING TO FIX IT, RIGHT? “Yes. My job is getting dinner.”
