“A few more laps and I think we would’ve had a top-10. Our long-run speed was really good today. The timing of the caution in the last stage wasn’t in our favor, so we had to battle back. Those last few laps we really had the speed. Proud of this Farmer John Ford team for putting together a really good points day. Ready for an off weekend.” – Aric Almirola, driver of the No. 10 Farmer John Ford Mustang
