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

“It was a good night for us, lots to be proud of. I never would have thought the race would go like that and we would have only changed tires once. It was fun to lead those laps. Hopefully we can do that a lot more in the upcoming races.”
