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

“Today wasn’t the day we wanted at all. Iowa is usually one of my best tracks and we struggled all day long. We just never really found the right balance all race, but fortunately we were still able to come away with a top-10 finish. I have to keep better and we have to keep getting better. We’ll get back to work and see what we can do at Chicago in two weeks.”
