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

“We had a really good car all day which was great because I’ve always seemed to lack a little speed on these bigger tracks. I thought we had put ourselves in a good position to miss the wrecks, but it just didn’t work out that way. We will go on to Dover next week to try and get the No. 00 into victory lane.”
