RYAN BLANEY, No. 12 Menards/Cardell Ford Mustang — “A big shout-out to Todd Gordon and everybody on this 12 team because we were awful at the start of the race and went a lap down in the first 60 laps.  That’s bad.  Luckily, we got the car a lot better.  Even the first stop and I got the lucky dog and really drove up through there and ran second the second stage.  Then we had a penalty on pit road, which sent us back again, so I was happy we were able to come back up through second.  I would have loved to restart towards the front with Martin to see, if I didn’t have to pass all those cars, if I could have raced with him.  He was pretty good.  I’m proud of this Menards/Cardell Ford Mustang, just a couple solid runs here we’ve got to string together.  We just need to break through.  Hopefully, we can do that soon.”
