Harry Gottsacker: “This win feels so good. Parker started today and killed it out there. We had great pitstops, the BHA boys and girls were so good in the pits today and that Elantra was fast as heck out there all weekend. That is what it takes to win in this series…need to nail everything.”
Parker Chase: “Great to get a back-to-back win here at Mid-Ohio, this might be my new favorite racetrack! We’ve made consistent small changes to the car every weekend and it is better and better each time. I’m really happy with our race today and good job to the 98 team.”
