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

“I think we had a really fast Quaker State Chevrolet tonight but we couldn’t get back to the front after that spin in the first stage. The front of the car was very good tonight but the back was out of the track.”
