Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “We had a lot of speed in our No. 07 G Coin Chevrolet Camaro, but unfortunately, we had a series of late-race problems that took us out of contention.
“The No. 26 spun and hit us in the right front and tore our fender a part and then the engine blew with like 12 laps to go and sent us to the garage.
“It’s just so frustrating because it seems like whatever we do, we can’t get some luck on our side. We will continue to fight though and go to Darlington next weekend and hope for a good finish there.”
