Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang:

“It’s been a real tough few weeks for our team. We started off really fast and unfortunately had our day ruined trying to get around a lapped car. I can’t thank my team enough for all the hard work on the car this weekend. We brought a really fast race car and I really wanted to get a win here at Bristol, but it just wasn’t our day.”
