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

“That was a difficult finish for us. I thought we had a car capable of a top-10. We worked on the handling all race long and showed some good speed today, but those speeding penalties just hurt our day. We learned a lot for when we come back for the November (Championship) race.”
