Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “First, I’m super proud of Patrick (Donahue, crew chief) and the entire SS GreenLight Racing team. Our No. 08 BassReaper Bait Co. | Bucked Up Energy Chevrolet was really fast and we got ourselves inside the top-12.
“Unfortunately, someone got turned around ahead of me and I got hit from behind and our car got damaged in the aftermath. From there, we just had to salvage the day and ended up 22nd.
“Pretty disappointed, because my guys did a great job and our car was fast and we don’t have anything to show for it. That’s racing I guess. We’ll move onto Martinsville and see what happens.”
