QUOTES
“If we didn’t have bad luck, we wouldn’t have any luck at all. It was a rough day for our thinQ Technology Partners Ford Mustang. On that restart, the outside line got going really well and we were moving forward. The guy behind me was pushing me a little bit out of Turn 2 and it got me sideways. I was just a pinball after that. It’s a disappointment being out so early and I hate it for my guys, but that is just superspeedway racing. We will keep working hard, head to Dover and rebound next weekend.”
