Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “The story of our season. We played some strategy at the end of Stage 1 to get some track position for Stage 2 and they started spinning ahead of me and I spun trying to avoid the cars around me.

“We were running seventh at the time and our No. 07 PowerWeld Chevrolet was improving but our race ended before we even had a chance of showing what we were capable of.

“I’m just disappointed because I really thought we were going to have a good showing for PowerWeld in their Xfinity Series debut.

“We will regroup like we always do and focus on Daytona and hope we can duplicate or better our finish from February.”
