Quotes from the Top Finishers:
"The weekend ended much better than yesterday. That was just not my day but we got everything to line up today. The start was pretty exciting. Steve and I spent a fair bit of that lap side-by-side. We turned into turn three together. I kept Tim (Minor) in my sights but I didn't have any pace for him. I don't know what happened to him but after that it was about hitting all my marks and trying to keep the pace up."
"I'm happy and frustrated. We are so close, we are right there. I was really surprised to see Tim Minor drop out. But I'll tell you what, that first lap footage from my camera is going to be epic on YouTube. It was an incredible first lap. Brandon was able to hold the gap and we were even. I knew Steve was right behind me, I was keeping an eye on him. We're happy with second. We have one more race to go, we'll get there.
"We sure had a low point in qualifying losing the engine. I'm thankful to ADSA/Wright for loaning me the No. 95. Lenny Tumenas and Tumenas Motorsports got the car dialed in."
