“Exactly what I’d have done,” Majeski told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Kenseth told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “It’s short-track racing.
Daniel Hemric finished ninth. Johnny Sauter placed 23rd.

"It feels good. I'm going to call it a season. One-for-one ... I just miss the competition. These guys are really good."
What a race and what a show last night! Had a blast racing with @mattkenseth. Had a dominant car, just way too tight after those last 2 cautions and he got us at the end. Hope everyone enjoyed the race. That’s what you call short track racing!!! pic.twitter.com/9QIhl2Q5qM— Ty Majeski (@TyMajeski) July 10, 2019
