“I felt like we gave Kyle (Busch) a run for his money today. I was hoping that Austin (Dillion) would have been able to give me a push there on the last restart but the No. 1 was on his quarter panel pulling him back and he wasn’t able to get to my bumper to help. I am proud of this GMS Racing team though. We didn’t unload where we needed to be on Friday but Chad (Norris, crew chief) and the boys worked really hard to get the car where it needed to be in race trim. We had a great car for the short runs and I could gain a lot of spots on the restarts. We will take this momentum and run with it.”
