 Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Nutri Chomps Ford Mustang:                                                    

“This is how we should have been running all year long, it’s just taken a little bit of time for me to learn the cars and the team to figure out what I like. Overall, this was by far our best weekend start to finish and we showed that we can be a top-four contender. At the end I felt like I had the best car it was just so hard to pass. We didn’t get the $100,000 this week, but we will give it another shot next week.”
