Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “We played some strategy in Stage 3 to keep us on the lead lap and unfortunately we had to come to pit road and the caution came out a lap later.

“It’s disappointing to see our strategy foiled by just one lap. We took a shot and we missed, but it wasn’t from the lack of effort.

“Our MARKET Racing Chevrolet continued to get better throughout the race, so I’m hopeful we can continue to march forward and earn us a top-20 finish next weekend at Kansas Speedway.”
