Sound Bites:

We had a solid day. Obviously, we wanted to win for Andy’s Frozen Custard and get that custard cone in victory lane. It was a hard-fought day for sure. We fought for every point out there and made the most of it. We just need that little bit more. We’re executing at a really high level right now. Our pit crew is doing great, and our guys are doing great, not making mistakes. We’re doing great just trying to maximize the days and keep ourselves in the points. We want to win. We want to try to go out there and win, so we just have to find that little bit more, but we are working on it.” –Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Andy’s Frozen Custard Ford Mustang

“Man, it just makes it that much harder when you’re that close. We looked like we had the speed and ability to pass for the lead, but caution after caution just made it so much harder to pass these guys. My handling was way off on that last run and then I ended up fading. I hate it for my No. 98 Monster Energy team. They work so hard to give me fast cars, and I want to get them to victory lane. Hopefully, we can have the same kind of speed at the next intermediate track.” –Riley Herbst, driver of the No. 98 Monster Energy Ford Mustang
