GRANT ENFINGER FINISHES 2ND IN THE FORD ECOBOOST 200 AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY
“[We needed] just a little bit of track position, I think. I honestly think the best truck won here tonight. I’m really happy for [Brett Moffitt and Hattori Racing] for winning the championship. That’s a small team doing really, really good. This No. 98 ThorSport Racing team has done incredible this year as well. If we could’ve snookered him on a start or got out in front of him, I don’t think [Moffitt] could’ve passed us. We were just off of him, it seemed like. On a short run, a long run, it didn’t matter. We were just a little bit off of him but hats off to these guys behind me. This Champion Power Equipment / Curb Records Ford F-150 was light years better than it was last year. It sat on the pole, had speed, so all in all it was a solid night.”

MATT CRAFTON FINISHES 6TH IN FORD ECOBOOST 200 AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY 
 
“All in all, we had a fast Ford F-150 tonight at Homestead-Miami Speedway, coming from 22nd early in the race to run up front for the majority of the night. We’ve had a bit of an up and down season, but thanks to everyone at Ford Performance, Menards and ThorSport Racing for the support throughout the year.”

BEN RHODES FINISHES 10TH IN THE FORD ECOBOOST 200 AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY
“It was a tough day for our team at Homestead-Miami Speedway. I felt like we had a little bit better Carolina Nut Co. Ford F-150 than where we ran all day and finished. We were fighting a really, really tight truck down to the center, and extremely loose up off. The majority of the race we were really loose, and I was running the top side as close to the wall as possible. If we had any points for cool points, we may have earned some, but unfortunately they don’t award cool points at Homestead-Miami Speedway.”

MYATT SNIDER BECOMES ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AFTER 14TH AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY
“We started the race out really, really loose. I don’t think we’ve been that loose at an intermediate [track] my whole life. The whole crew from ThorSport Racing made some awesome adjustments. We made great changes, and they got the Ford F-150 handling really well. Towards the end of the race, I could actually drive it. We learned a lot tonight, and I think this hopefully bodes well for next year. I’m just so proud of everyone on the team. They brought me a great Tenda Ford F-150. I’m so happy to have all of our great partners who have helped us out this season, like Louisiana Hot Sauce. Overall, it was a great night.”
