Quotes:
“We had pit strategy to get us up front toward the end of the race and we were able to hold on to it for a little while, but we’ve got a little bit more to figure out to get it so we can win. I think everyone at GMS Racing gave me a fast car, our Chevy Accessories Chevrolet was really fun to drive. I’m really excited for our next ARCA race at Salem in September and the K&N race at New Hampshire next weekend.”
