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

“We had a really good day going today until we got run into the wall in the final stage. I’m really proud of everybody on this Nutri Chomps Ford team – I feel like this was the best car we have had all year long. Unfortunately, we don’t have the results to show for it, but we are showing that we can contend to win races week in and week out.”
