“We had a top-five car today. I got up into the top-five there at the end but I didn’t execute and it cost us a lot of spots. This team has worked hard this year and they deserve more. The track was really greasy. I had a hard time finding grip in the rear tires but Chad (Norris, crew chief) made some great calls to get the handling fixed up. We will take this top-10 and move on to Richmond next weekend.”
