Contact Spoils Potential Top-10 Finish for Joe Graf Jr. and Team at Atlanta
Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway | Nalley Cars 250
Team: No. 07 Gtechniq Ford Mustang
Driver: Joe Graf Jr.
Finish: 23rd; Running (172 | 172 laps completed)
Driver Points Position: 29th | Owner Points Position: 23rd
Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “I’m disappointed with our finish because I really felt like we were capable of a top-10 finish in our No. 07 Gtechniq Ford Mustang.
“We had a lot of speed with our race car and Joe (Williams crew chief) did a great job dialing in the car for the long haul in Stage 3 and we utilized some strategy to put ourselves in the top-10 and I think we could have maintained that pace if not for the contact with another car.
“We salvaged an OK day though. It could have been a lot worse. We’ll just keep our heads high and look forward and not behind.”
