“I’m really excited about the day we had here at Road America. We came home with a top-five finish, and for me, that’s pretty good considering mid-race we had to make an unscheduled pit stop. A miscue on pit road unfortunately cost us some track position when we had to come back down to put on more lug nuts. To come from the tail end of the lead lap there, all the way back up to a top-five finish, is really good. It says a lot about my crew chief, Justin Alexander, and our HotScream team. We don’t give up. RCR builds some fast race cars, and we showed that today. The only bittersweet thing is in the middle of the race, we had a really good battle with the 20 car and I think we were as good as he was. Depending on who hit their last adjustment just right, I think we would have had a shot at beating him. I know that we had speed to contend up front, but a top-five finish is still a really good day for us. I can’t thank everyone at RCR for the opportunity to race for them this year. I learned a lot and gained a ton of experience.”
