– Key Takeaway: Matt Mills and the No. 42 team had a relatively uneventful day at WWT Raceway. Mills qualified in the 26th position and would finish in the same spot at the conclusion of stage one. Jon Leonard called for significant changes in stage two, and the group would climb to 18th at the stage. Citing a tight condition, Mills lost a bit of track position en-route to a 23rd-place finish.

– Matt Mills’ Post-Race Thoughts: “We struggled from the get-go today, just fought a free-handling truck from the beginning of the first stage. We pitted to make some adjustments and try to get better, but ultimately ended up going the wrong way. By stage two, we got it tightened up, but ended up getting too tight. Overall, we lacked some raw speed. We had some top-15 lap times, but it just wasn’t what we needed today. Brought home another finish that almost wasn’t tore up right until the end there, but that’s just part of it. We’ll keep learning as we go onto the next one.”
