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

“Our car took a few laps to get going, but once it did we were pretty good. We just struggled in traffic more than everyone else it seemed. But we are getting better and continuing to improve. It was a good weekend. We met a lot of Freeway customers on Saturday and hosted a lot of employees and friends on Sunday at the track.”
