Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “Absolutely no excuse to get dumped by the No. 52 (Gray Gaulding) and ruin our afternoon and that of the No. 23 (Blaine Perkins) car. I don’t know what he was thinking, and I won’t put up with getting shoved around like that.

“My guys work too hard, and my sponsors put 100 percent effort into going out there and getting the best finish possible.

“Continuing off from the race on Friday night, our No. 07 Responsible Gold Chevrolet was tight – but we were getting the balance right when he (Gray) decided he needed to make matters into his own hands and ruin our race.

“We’ll go to Talladega and try to put this string of tough finishes behind us and see if we can’t build on what we delivered at Daytona in February.”
