PHOENIX 1 post-race
No. 1 McDonald’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
- McMurray was forced to make an unscheduled pit stop on lap 274 because of a bad vibration while running inside the top 15.
- The caution flag was shown six times for a total of 36 laps and the lead changed 15 times among nine drivers
“Our McDonald’s Chevy Camaro ZL1 was really good early in today’s race,” said McMurray. “Our car was pretty good on the longer runs. I think we were a definitely a top-10 car today. We had one set of tires past midway through the race that just wasn’t very good and we lost a lot of track position on that long green flag run. Then after our last scheduled stop, I just had a real bad vibration in the car that forced us to make and unscheduled stop, which took us out of contention for a strong finish.”
