Connor Mosack, Driver No. 28 High Point University/Nic Tailor Custom Fit Underwear/Interstate Foam & Supply/TeamSLR/M1 Racecars Ford Mustang:
“I still believe we had the best car of the race, it just didn’t go our way this time. We’ll take the second-place points and we’ll go have another good day in Atlanta. It was great to have High Point University on the car and get them a podium finish for their first race.”
William Sawalich, Driver No. 8 Starkey/Audibel/TeamSLR/M1 Racecars Chevrolet Camaro:
“Qualifying 10th we were very pleased, going into the race we knew we had a chance to improve position. During the race we broke a sway bar arm off, which called for an early retirement from the race.”
