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

“It was a very, very difficult day. We have to regroup and try to see where we are a little wrong. We started the race extremely off. We made a few steps in the right direction and then we lost it again by the end. We have a lot of work to do. But we have very good people and have to regroup to try to see what we’re going to do.”
