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

“That was a lot of hard work today for a 14th-place finish but we will take it. It wasn’t what we expected or wanted, but that’s a pretty decent finish. We showed improvement this weekend and gained a lot from practice and qualifying. We’ll keep working at it and be ready for Iowa next week.”
