Quote:

“It was an up-and-down day for sure. We had to go to the back of the field twice, once because we had a tire going flat on the starting grid and had to change the tire and then the next time because Brandon (Brown, No. 86 driver) locked onto our bumper. I wish we could have gotten some more stage points but it still was a solid points day for this 23 team. The car is still in one piece so we will take it back to the shop and build on what we learned this weekend for the next plate race at Daytona in July.”
