Coke Zero Sugar 400 – Daytona International Speedway: Post-Race
No. 1 DC Solar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Standings: 22nd (91 points behind 16th; final playoff spot)
- McMurray was running eighth when he was involved in a multi-car accident on lap 66 that caused heavy damage to the right front suspension and forced the No. 1 DC Solar team to retire early from the race.
- The race was slowed by 10 cautions for a total of 46 laps and one red flag, and the lead changed 25 times among 16 drivers.
“Just a super disappointing way to end our night. We had a pretty good DC Solar Chevy and we were just trying to stay out of trouble. We had to make a couple of extra pit stops early on to address an issue with the axle seal, so we were just trying to race back to the front. Like a typical Daytona race, we were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. I hate it for everyone that spends so much time and effort on these cars to have an early exit like that.”
