Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 99 Minute Maid Aguas Frescas Chevrolet Camaro for Trackhouse Racing:

“I thought our Aguas Frescas Chevrolet was pretty good today. We didn’t have enough grip to win the race but we were good for a top-10 maybe a top-five. Our day ended in the wreck. I don’t know what happened there. I thought I had given him plenty of room. We have four more races this year and plan to close the season strong.”
