Sound Bites:

“We had a really good MotoRad Ford Mustang Dark Horse and a lot of speed early in the race before the pit road penalty. I’m glad we were able to recover pretty quickly and show just how strong our car was. Once the sun started to go down the car was just a little too tight for me to hold onto the top-10, but still a really strong showing for us that we can keep building on.” – Justin Haley, driver of the No. 51 MotoRad Ford Mustang Dark Horse
