Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Jacob Companies Ford Mustang:

“We had the best car we ever have here at Michigan. The car was absolutely perfect and I felt like we had the best car all day but dirty air slowed us down at the beginning. Later in the race we were able to drive by the 20 and drive away from the field but we had to make a late stop for fuel which caused us to drop to 12th. I really wanted to win this one because we’re in Ford’s backyard, but we will learn from this and come back even better next time.”
