Really though, we all knew our chances on that restart were slim. Someday we'll get to restart up there with fresh tires though

The cool thing is that was still a great race. Probably been the best season of racing our sport as seen in awhile. #NASCAR

There is only so much we can control… Everything we could, we did really well. I'm very proud of my @LowesRacing team.

Well THAT was an interesting race. Guess 12th is ok after smacking the fence. Had a good car most the day. Solid effort by the 88 team. 👍

Well I learned a lot today. Hit the fence a few times. Last time was trying to pass the 11 and just messed up and cost us some. Ended up 22
