It definitely felt like we were really good at the beginning of the race and able to come through the field pretty quickly. As the track went away, we just weren’t as good as the top 3. It was cool to get the Roper Racing guys a top 5 in our first start, they did a great job of preparing a fast truck from the beginning. Hopefully, we can do it again soon.” From the Pit Box Shane Whitbeck: “We had to start toward the back after the qualifying races were rained out. Chase did a great job of managing traffic and the changing track conditions to get to the front. We fought forward drive most of the day. We seemed to lose the forward drive we had in practice. We leveled off once we reached 4th place and stayed there the rest of the race. Still a great points day getting us back into the top 20.
