Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 41 FIELDS Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing:

“It was an eventful day for sure. We were just way, way, way too loose to start the day. We were able to get it better but restarts weren’t better for us. The longer we ran the better we were. We were just lacking a lot of rear grip out there today and that was our undoing.”
