  • Up until the finish, the Trackhouse Chevrolets were two of the fastest cars on the track.
  • Suárez started 11th and moved to sixth in the opening laps.
  • Suárez remained at the front of the field with both drivers choosing to pit before the end of the first and second stages to gain better track position.

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

“Very disappointing. We got hit from behind on the restart and got a lot of damage. It felt like everyone was wrecking everyone. I hate it because we were going to get a top three finish today. We were pretty good all race and I think we were where we wanted to be in the end.”
