TY GIBBS, No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota GR Supra, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd
Came from the back twice and scored a solid finish. How was the race from your seat?
“We had a fast Monster Energy Toyota GR Supra. I just made some mistakes that didn’t help us out. It’s just frustrating and something I shouldn’t be doing.”
SANTINO FERRUCCI, No. 26 Screamin’ Sicilian/Kroger Toyota GR Supra, Sam Hunt Racing
Finishing Position: 17th
Solid NASCAR road course debut, Santino. How was your first NASCAR road course experience?
“It was honestly a great day for the Screamin’ Sicilian Toyota GR Supra. It was tough out there. There was not a lot of yellows. Everybody was really on their game today. It was definitely not like we’ve seen in the past here. Hats off to the whole crew. We had great stops on pit road. Everyone from Sam Hunt Racing did a great job. We just had a fuel issue once we got past half tank. Nothing we can do – we just fought through it. I had a blast. I’d be glad to do it anytime.”
