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

“We are disappointed. The Jockey Outdoors Chevrolet was getting better and better. We had a lot of good this weekend. The car was fast, good pit stops and everything seemed to be going right, but you can’t control what happens in front of you and we just got caught up in someone else’s problem.”
