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

“It’s appropriate our car had Kubota on it today because it took a heck of a beating and still came home with a good finish. It was an up-and-down kind of day for the No. 99 Kubota Chevy team. I felt like the car had potential, but we just continued to work on the balance and try to make it a little bit better. We had a couple of issues on pit road. I made a mistake coming onto pit road on a green-flag stop. I felt like the car was a top-10 car, and overall, it was a good day for our team.”
