Although impressed by his team, head coach Doug Molnar was still concerned on how his guys let their foot off the gas pedal late in the race.
“It was disappointing because we have a veteran group up front and they have the ability to dominate a race like this,” said Molnar. “We’ll have to man up and get ourselves together. We have to step it up and get it done.”
