We had a good charge at the end to secure our fourth-place finish. There was a ton of strategy involved, and a ton of contact between all of the classes. It was one of those finishes that you wanted a few more laps, but I’m proud of the effort that everyone at Wright Motorsports put in. The guys were flawless in the pits all day. We had the pace and it was a good points day. We retained second place in the team points, and sit third in the driver’s standings. We just have to keep putting these solid positions on the board and let the year take it’s own shape.
