Cindric, who was in danger of missing qualifying, joined the group of 16 drivers who have won at least one race.

“I’m honestly sad for the (Blaney) team,” Cindric said. “I don’t know what happened to them at the end of the race. They deserved to win. Ryan was a great leader on this team.” “This weekend was a great weekend for everyone involved. But, yeah, with two (Penske) cars in the fight and it looked like they were going to get one and two places… my heart broke for them.”

“[La victoria] It’s amazing to me. It’s unbelievable for this team. I’m very happy to get the victory with Brian (Wilson) as the crew chief. You never know when it will happen again. He added: “I did everything I could, and I hope for the best.”

Brad Keselowski was third, Tyler Reddick was fourth, and Joey Logano rounded out the top five.
