Quote: “We were pushing really hard up top and that’s gonna happen at the end of the race. You’re gonna see something similar again here. There’s gonna be a lot of hard pushing. Hopefully, they don’t crash, but they started coming down across the race track and I was right there. I thought I had it missed and then I think every car in the field got a piece of me along the way, so I had a great Fitzgerald Mustang, but sometimes your the bug and sometimes you’re the windshield.”
