“I was hoping for a better run after a promising qualifying effort.  We were searching for rear grip all night long and just couldn’t make the right adjustments to get our Glory Foods Ford where we needed it to be.  Our team did a good job and worked hard to help us post the best effort we could.”

“August was a great month for our No. 38 team, and we were hoping to get September started off on the right foot.  Unfortunately, we had some electrical issues and had to go to the garage. We were able to get back out and gain a few spots to help us in the points.”
