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

“Wow, sixth place. What a finish. We worked hard for that. It was a tough day for us. We just couldn’t get our Chevrolet to turn like we needed it to. We tried a lot of things. Nobody gave up and we just kept trying for better track position. We will have to look at everything so we can be better next time. Sixth-place isn’t too bad a finish, but we want better.”
