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

“Our No. 99 Princess Cruises Chevy was good. It was a little bit tight, a little bit loose. I felt like we had to play with the balance of the car quite a bit. But overall, I felt our car was good. Probably not a winning car, but a solid top-five car. With the right circumstances, we probably could have won the race, but we spent too much time trying to gain track position.”
