Talk about your race.
“We just never quite had the feel we needed all weekend to go out and compete for the win. We were able to run in the top five and just kind of got shuffled back on the late restarts and didn’t finish where we ran. Thanks to everyone at KBM and HendrickCars.com for allowing me to run these three truck races. Hopefully, we can do it again next year.”
