Soundbites:
“Our HighPoint.com Mustang was good in the first leg. We really needed more playoff points and those extra stage points at the end of the regular season, so staying away for the stage win helped with that. But once we fought back in traffic, things really changed. It was super hard to pass and we started to struggle. It was harder than I thought to get over that, but I’m proud of the guys who persevered and tried to make the most of it. I think we have a very good setup for the next road courses. – Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 14 HighPoint.com Ford Mustang

Next step :
