Dylan Duval, driver of the No. 41 Mobil 1/Haas Automation Ford Mustang:
“We had a really good Mobil 1/Haas Automation Ford Mustang tonight. Unfortunately, I didn’t qualify the best. Thankfully, my spotter/crew chief Nick Neben called a very aggressive race. We were able to leapfrog through the field and ended up 15th after struggling on the old left-side tires. Overall, a great rebound for us tonight. Looking forward to Bristol in a couple of weeks.”
Justin Bolton, driver of the No. 10 Smithfield Ford Mustang:
“Drove up to seventh and did what we could in dirty air. Got damage on a restart and couldn’t come close after that. Same story as California (Auto Club Speedway). The Smithfield Ford Mustang was really good, we just got hit in the side on a restart and it ruined our race – couldn’t keep up down the straights at that point. I tried running the top to mediate the problem, but we just couldn’t get the speed we had the first run and got passed by all the cars we passed to start. Thanks for everyone for tuning in, though. Can’t wait to move on from this and get to Bristol.”
