Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “I am really proud of our SS GreenLight Racing with Jeff Lefcourt team. We had a fast No. 07 Bucked Up Rocket Pop Ford Mustang in practice, qualifying, and throughout the race’s early stages.
“We struggled in traffic about midway during the race. We made the car better but during our march back towards the top-20, we were collected in one of the big melees off Turn 2.
“Unfortunately, we suffered some front-end damage which took us out of contention for a top-10 finish, but we did fight hard and salvage the race with a respectable finish.
“Hopefully, we can go back to Talladega and pick up where we left off with another top-10 finish next Saturday afternoon.”
