QUOTE
“After our struggles in the first five races of the season, I came into Texas Motor Speedway looking for a clean race and a solid finish. I would say we accomplished that today. Our Achilles heel throughout the race was that we were just too tight in the center of the corner and it hurt our speed on exit. We definitely made strides in the right direction throughout the weekend and I am looking forward to my next race with the JGL crew. I’d like to thank our partners for their continued support.”
