  • Ryan Truex: “We finished 18th at Watkins Glen…not the day we wanted. We had a top 10 in stage one and had another top 10 going in stage two but had a tire go down so we had to pit. I thought we had a good strategy there just waiting for everyone else in front of us to pit in the long run there at the end (of stage two) but the caution came out. It couldn’t have been a worse time for us and then we got a pit road penalty. We had to come from the rear, got spun out and managed to get back to 18th. So, it was an up and down day—definitely not what we wanted but we’ll go to Mid-Ohio and hopefully get back in the top 10.”
