Winning Quote: “Over time everybody remembers a champion but ultimately, you’re looking to win races.  It’s been a while since we won races.  It’s not for a lack of trying; we’ve had some close calls.” – Mike O’Sullivan

 

On the Move: Nick Lascoula started 14th and charged to a sixth-place finish, a gain of eight positions.

 

Biggest Loser: Jeremy Harclerode started third and battled at the front early before making contact with the turn one wall on Lap 76.  He ultimately finished 15th, a loss of 12 positions.
