  • Ryan Truex: “We ended up fifth at Mid-Ohio. It was Kaulig Racing’s first ever top five and to do it with everyone from LeafFilter here at the home track was really special. Thanks to Chris and those guys; they made a great call at the end to stay out on older tires and we were able to hold off the No. 1 car and all of those guys on new tires. So it says a lot about our team and being able to come here and have speed after limited practice. Hopefully we can go to Bristol and repeat again.”
