"That was a tough one for us tonight. Our No. 34 Dockside Logistics Ford Mustang fired off really strong on Friday. We showed a lot of speed in both practice and qualifying and it looked as if we were going to have a pretty decent chance of making it into the All-Star Race, but the car was crazy tight, which caused me to have to lift in the corners and ultimately lose a considerable amount of ground on the leaders. The good news is that we’ll be back here next weekend and have a shot at redeeming ourselves."
No. 36 Surface Sunscreen/Tunity TV Ford Mustang Started: 13th | Finished: 11th
"We had our ups and downs this weekend through practice and qualifying. We had a lot of potential for a good run in the All-Star Open tonight and tried to set ourselves up to advance to the All-Star Race by staying out during a couple of cautions, but didn’t have the best restarts - especially in traffic - and ultimately came home P11. I’m proud that we were able to support the Niner Nation Unites campaign on our No. 36 Surface Sunscreen/Tunity Ford this weekend and I’m looking forward to coming back to Charlotte Motor Speedway again next weekend."
"We were there in the top three or four at times, but you really needed to be that first or second car. I felt like there were five or six guys that could have won every one of those stages and it was all about track position and restarts, getting the right runs at the right time and having somewhere to take the runs. We made up a couple of spots on restarts and then we lost a few spots the very next one, but we learned a few things for the direction of our mile-and-a-half cars and maybe a few things to transfer to the 600. It was a fun Open. I wish we could have advanced, but we’ll work hard to do better next time."
"Kansas proved to be a really tough race. On Friday, we struggled a lot to find speed and dial in our car, but luckily I have a great group of guys on my team and they were able to rebound and get it in better shape for the race. Although we lacked some speed, I feel like we learned a lot and can take away some valuable information to apply to our mile and a half program."
"Our run at Kansas was one that we really, really needed. We performed well in the middle part of the race, which set us up for a good run at the end, putting us close to the lead lap. We were able to take the wave around a couple of times, but ultimately just didn't have enough laps to be able to make our way into the top-20. It was a great effort from our whole team. I feel like we were able to rebound from a difficult situation last week and have the kind of race that we really needed. It was great to have OutWest Express on the car with us and I hope we can have them back again at some point this season. Looking forward to coming home over the next couple of weeks to race in Charlotte."
"It was a hard fought night under the lights at Kansas Speedway. We went 2 laps down early in the race after having a right rear tire go down and didn’t have the speed to make them back up. It was great to have Mystik Lubricants along with us for their first race of the season. I can’t wait to have them back on the car later this year at Texas Motor Speedway. Until then, we will keep working on improving the speed and handling of our Fords and come back stronger at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend."
"Our car performed a lot better today compared to where we started out on Friday. It’s always encouraging to see positive gains over the course of a race weekend. Today, our No. 34 Ford started out loose and just seemed to stay that way all race long. We tried a wide variety of changes to tighten it up, but in the end we came home P24. My team fought hard on pit road and made some great pit stops. I’m looking forward to getting back in the car this coming weekend at Kansas Speedway with Love’s Travel Stops."
No. 36 Surface Sunscreen/Tunity TV Ford Mustang Started: 32nd | Finished: 32nd
"It definitely wasn’t the weekend we’d hoped for at the Monster Mile. We struggled all through practice and qualifying, and had to serve a pass-through penalty to start the race. The car was really tight throughout the entire race and it felt like we just couldn’t recover from the hole we were in. We tried to use this as a learning opportunity for our No. 36 Surface Sunscreen/Tunity TV Ford and we’ll take as much of those learnings as we can onto Kansas next weekend."
"Today was a hard fought battle for our No. 38 Mustang. We had a pretty decent car on Saturday, but we just missed the setup by a few adjustments for a day race on Monday. Our car was really tight the entire race, we made adjustments to all 4 corners, but could never get a caution to fall at the right time for us to gain a few laps back and contend for a top-15 or top-20 finish. We’ll learn from it and continue to work hard as we get ready to head to a great track of ours next weekend at Kansas and welcome Mystik Lubricants on board with us for their first race of 2019."
