Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Jimmy John’s Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing:

“We just got some cars up there that didn’t need to be up there and wound up doing more than their car could do. I’ve just got to thank everybody on our Jimmy John’s/Busch Beer Ford for everything that they’ve done all week. We had, I felt, the fastest car in the field and right in contention for both segments, and then it’s all tore up and it came to an end. What do you do?”
