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

“I got loose under the 19 car on the restart. You have to push so hard because it’s so difficult to pass here after a couple laps. You just have to get what you can get. I wasn’t having the best restarts all day, so I was trying to be aggressive there and pushed it too hard.”
