Connor Mosack, Driver No. 28 Open Eyes/Nacarato Truck Centers/Nic Taylor Custom Fit Underwear/M1 Racecars Ford Mustang:
“I felt like the guys did a really good job getting our Open Eyes/Nic Taylor car up to speed. It was really good in qualifying. I was a little worried about how our long-run speed was going to be, but I felt like it was there in the race and I was just riding along once we got the lead. I thought we were in a really good position when that last caution came out with just six or seven to go. We fired off good and I thought we were in a good spot, but it just didn’t work out. I think we have the speed to win this next race and, hopefully, win the championship.”
Chris Liesfeld, Driver No. 96 Fields Racing/M1 Racecars Chevrolet Camaro:
“I struggled a little bit even though this is a track I’m familiar with. Nonetheless, I had a great race with Tom Sheehan. We swapped positions a couple of times in the race, but we kept it clean and that’s the way to do it. I had a good time doing that.”
