Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “This one stings a little. We had a really good No. 08 Bucked Up Energy Chevrolet and were just hovering inside the top-20 and then we had a gear failure.

“I’m bummed because I really think we would have been able to escape Kansas with a top-15 or better. We’ll get regrouped and try again for Texas on Saturday.”
