“Qualifying was good today which lead into the race with us starting 12th. We were just unlucky during that last stage with the caution not falling our way. Bruce made some good adjustments through out the race and I started getting more comfortable as the race went on. I appreciate all the guys working hard on this WeatherTech team. We will go again next weekend!"
