“We started fifth and the plan was to just chill out and basically pre-run to Colonet,” Matney said. “From there we just poured it on and just held position. The dust today was just miserable. We got stuck behind a couple of SCORE Trophy Trucks from the start to the lakebed and we couldn’t do anything to get around them.

“We had no flats and no issues until the motor started missing around Borrego. When we pulled in here it completely died.”
