Mosack qualified 18th, but had to make repairs in stage one, dropping to 25th. They went on to finish 26th in stage two, but the damage proved to be too heavy to enable him to move up the running order. Mosack would walk away with a 22nd-place result in his second start with Niece Motorsports.
– Connor Mosack’s Post-Race Thoughts: “Overall, it was a long day for us. We had a decent truck, but got some left-front damage when we got ran into the wall on lap three. That’s where our problems really started since we were tight after that. Once we stayed out, I felt like we could hold our own pretty well and run in the top-five, but our damage caved in on the left front tire and almost cut it down. We were too tight in traffic to work our way forward the rest of the day. Just an unfortunate one all around, but I have to say a big thank you to everyone at Chevrolet and Niece Motorsports for bringing what I thought was a top-10 truck. Just had that damage early that hurt us too much for the rest of the day.”
