Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 99 Good Sam Chevrolet Camaro for Trackhouse Racing:

“I think we were hitting the splitter at the beginning on the race and that made the handling really difficult. We just kept working on it. We were pretty good on long runs tonight. We used some good strategy and got a pretty decent finish. We need to keep improving. It was a good day for us. I had a blast with my Amigos before the race. I hope they enjoyed the day and come back soon.”
