Toyota Quotes:

Daison Pursley, CB Industries Toyota: “The Pristine Auction, NOS Energy Drink and Toyota number 86 was fast tonight and I think it was going to be one heck of a race with Justin with how the track was developing. Hats off to Chad Boat and the entire CB Industries team. It’s a long week and it’s good to kick if off with two wins. The track kind of threw everyone a curveball, as the bottom and the middle came back into play as the race went on. I felt it was another really good racetrack for us to race on and kept us guessing tonight.”
