Winning driver Ron Pierce said, "I had the horsepower. It helps to have the horse that's good enough to win the race. The trip worked out really well. I floated him out of there off the seven-hole, fell into the four-hole, picked up some very good cover and tipped him off the cover's back just before we straightened up. Mike did his job, he had him up on his toes, and (Beer Summit) had plenty of trot to the wire." Trainer Mike Vanderkemp added, "I thought we had one of the best horses and we just needed a trip."
