FRM Post-Race Report: Kansas

No. 38 Mystik Lubricants Ford MustangStarted: 24th | Finished: 27th
“It was a hard fought night under the lights at Kansas Speedway. We went 2 laps down early in the race after having a right rear tire go down and didn’t have the speed to make them back up. It was great to have Mystik Lubricants along with us for their first race of the season. I can’t wait to have them back on the car later this year at Texas Motor Speedway. Until then, we will keep working on improving the speed and handling of our Fords and come back stronger at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend.”

No. 36 OutWest Express Ford MustangStarted: 26th | Finished: 21st
“Our run at Kansas was one that we really, really needed. We performed well in the middle part of the race, which set us up for a good run at the end, putting us close to the lead lap. We were able to take the wave around a couple of times, but ultimately just didn’t have enough laps to be able to make our way into the top-20. It was a great effort from our whole team. I feel like we were able to rebound from a difficult situation last week and have the kind of race that we really needed. It was great to have OutWest Express on the car with us and I hope we can have them back again at some point this season. Looking forward to coming home over the next couple of weeks to race in Charlotte.”

“Kansas proved to be a really tough race. On Friday, we struggled a lot to find speed and dial in our car, but luckily I have a great group of guys on my team and they were able to rebound and get it in better shape for the race. Although we lacked some speed, I feel like we learned a lot and can take away some valuable information to apply to our mile and a half program.”
