Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 99 Tootsies Chevrolet Camaro for Trackhouse Racing:

“We had a very fast car today but just got behind there with track position. I really wanted to get a top-10 and just needed a few more laps. I want to congratulate Ross and Ryan Blaney. Next year I hope we are the ones battling for a championship at Phoenix. We are going to take a little bit of time to rest then we are going to go back to work.”
