Connor Zilisch, Driver No. 5 Silver Hare Racing/KHI Management Chevrolet Camaro:
 
“I think today was just bad luck, honestly. We started on rains and put slicks on after 14 laps. It was then we started overheating and we popped a radiator hose, which ended our race. I felt like we had a really fast car and it was just unfortunate that we didn’t get to show our speed. But, I think we had a really good car and we’re getting better every week. I know what we’re doing and I’m looking forward to moving forward.”
