I’m really proud of everything that we overcame. Everyone did a great job and we had a fast truck and even finished fourth in Stage 2. Near the end of the race, it became very hectic and I got booted twice which forced us to come from the back of the field both times. We managed to go from 29th to 15th in that final sprint to the finish. Even though it wasn’t a top-10, I think we showed everyone we have a lot of speed in our trucks and that we’re going to be contenders throughout the year. I’m looking forward to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks.” Next Up: Bucked Up 200 at Las Vegas (Nev.)
