Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “I am so proud of everyone on this No. 07 G-Coin team. Joe (Williams) really brought me a fast No. 07 G-Coin Chevrolet Camaro.
“We were patient for most of the race but when we knew that the race might get cut short because of darkness, we really played our strategy and with the help of a good car in the draft, we were able to put ourselves in the top-10.
“This finish is huge for us, our partners and everyone on the SS GreenLight Racing team. Hopefully, we can utilize this finish to propel us forward for the rest of the year.”
