This weekend kicked off race season at Daytona, the #22 Ford Mustang was a strong competitor, qualifying fourth, unfortunately some last minute repairs after qualifying put us in the back of the pack for the start of the race, Joey Logano drove inside the top-five within the first seven laps of the race. The #22 car would lead 26 laps over the course of the race, before getting collected in a multi-vehicle incident on the backstretch during the first attempt at a green-white-checkered finish.
We were pushing really hard up top and that’s gonna happen at the end of the race. You’re gonna see something similar again here. There’s gonna be a lot of hard pushing. Hopefully, they don’t crash, but they started coming down across the race track and I was right there. I thought I had it missed and then I think every car in the field got a piece of me along the way, so I had a great Fitzgerald Mustang, but sometimes your the bug and sometimes you’re the windshield.
