Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Henry Repeating Arms Ford Mustang:

“We had a really fast Henry Repeating Arms Ford, but just got in trouble there at the start of Stage 2. We had to play catch up and get our lap back from there. My car was really fast and we raced our way back through the field at the end, I just wish we could have raced for the win.”
