  • Truex: “It was a good race at Charlotte Motor Speedway; we got another top-10, sixth-place. I’m really happy for the Phantom Fireworks guys and everybody that we could bring here from Ohio to have a good race and a good finish. It was a tough race. I got in the wall early and we fought a lot of handling issues so it was not an easy race by any means. We also had to sit through a rain delay when we were in third, so we kind of had to wait that one out. But I’m really proud of these guys and glad we could get Phantom a great race and get some momentum going into next weekend.”
