Justin Grant: “We worked all day to get it stable on the curb. Yesterday, we were really good on the bottom, but I really couldn’t run it against the curb that well. We got a lot better on the curb, but it just wasn’t the place to be tonight. I tried to pound it for a while, but fell back to fourth or fifth. Then I sold out and went back to the bottom and putted around the tires and we worked our way back to second. This NOS Energy Drink RMS car was good tonight and it’s been good all weekend. I felt like I didn’t do the greatest job last night and had a good car. Tonight I thought I did a pretty good job and brought it home second. It was going to be hard to do much at the end, getting that low and that slow. It was a good night and a good weekend for us.”
