Finishing Position: 5th

Talk about your top-five finish today.

“We were just kind of slow all day. We didn’t get the finish we wanted. I thought we were going to run second there if the yellow didn’t come out and unfortunately the yellow came out. I started on the bottom and just could never – just wasn’t fast enough to get up there. Bummer, but it was a much needed momentum for after how Charlotte went.”

BRANDON JONES, No. 19 Juniper Toyota Supra, Joe Gibbs Racing

Finishing Position: 38th

What happened out there?

“I’m more frustrated for the guys than myself. I never run great here, so to be running fourth the way we were, to have a really good Supra actually qualify way better than I thought we were going to as well – too good to be true I guess. I don’t know. We’ve just got to keep going. We’ve got really good cars. These guys are working really good in the shop. We’ve just got to keep staying up there.”
