Stage Three Recap:
Todd Gilliland, driver of the No. 4 Royal Canin Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports:
How did you survive and end up second?
"Before this race, we talked about maximizing our race. I did feel like we maximized our day and that's something to be proud of. We had a little bit of damage on both sides of our Royal Canin Tundra. We could have been a little bit better, but that's what it's about. It's all about teamwork and we have to keep working on it."
