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

“I’m very proud of my guys. That wreck Saturday put us back and we had to get the backup car ready with no laps of practice. They stayed late last night and came in early this morning. That Tootsie’s Chevrolet didn’t feel like a backup and if we had another 100 miles we would have finished even better. We passed many cars today coming from the back a few times.”
