Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “We made huge gains with our No. 08 G-Coin Ford Mustang from practice to qualifying and made the show on time. Unfortunately, during the race when we were starting to make some real progress to move forward we dropped a cylinder and had to ride out the race.
“It’s important that we finished, but it obviously wasn’t the result we were looking for. I’m proud of our SS GreenLight Racing with Jeff Lefcourt team. We’ll refocus and look ahead to Richmond.”
Next Up: ToyotaCare 250 at Richmond (Va.) Raceway on Sat., Apr. 2, 2022, at 1:30 p.m. ET live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1) | Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Satellite Radio NASCAR Channel 90.
