Sound Bites:

“He put me in the fence off four and then we hit on the frontstretch because I was going to go pinch him down, and he decided to try and go up and side draft me and then we hit again. And then I don’t know if he blew a tire into one or what happened into one, but then he tried to kill me on the backstretch and just held it full throttle until he wrecked our car and killed the rear clip. I slapped my head against the back of the headrest. I don’t know. I know it was hard racing, but at the end of the day I don’t like getting intentionally wrecked and killing the front and rear clip on our race car. It’s just ridiculous. If he wants to drive like a pissed off teenager, it’s just ridiculous. I’ve said enough.” –Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Fanttik Ford Mustang Dark Horse

“I haven’t seen a replay. I passed him twice cleanly, slid him. Racing in Charlotte, it’s hot, and I passed him. I mean, it’s really hot. The cars are really sliding around today. My spotter said, ‘clear’ and I moved up to the fence. He had a run off the top, which is fine, and he could have tried to slide me back and get some momentum, but instead he just got my left-rear and hooked me. It’s unfortunate because of how far up we had moved from the start.” –Riley Herbst, driver of the No. 98 Monster Energy Ford Mustang Dark Horse
