Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “Everyone on the SS GreenLight Racing with Jeff Lefcourt team was pretty frustrated with our finish at Daytona. I really thought we had a fast No. 07 Bucked Up Energy Drink Ford Mustang that we could contend with for a good finish, but the axle broke following a pit stop and we had to go to the garage to replace it. 

“We still had a lot of speed in our No. 07 Bucked Up Energy Drink Ford Mustang when we returned to the track, but by then we were out of contention for a good finish and it was about turning laps and getting the best finish possible. 

“Hopefully, Auto Club is a lot kinder to us.”
