Las Vegas Motor Speedway: Post-Race
No. 1 GEARWRENCH Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
- McMurray cut a tire on lap 212 while running seventh and made heavy contact with the turn three wall, which forced the No. 1 GEARWRENCH Chevy to retire early from the race.
- The No. 1 car ran in the top-10 for a majority of today’s race before the lap 212 incident.
- McMurray led once for five laps.
- The caution flag was shown 12 times for a total of 59 laps and the lead changed 23 times among nine drivers.
“I feel like our whole year has kind of gone like this. There is nothing you can do about it. I was thrilled with the speed that we had with the GEARWRENCH Chevy today. I felt like at Darlington and Indy we had really good cars, and yesterday after practice I thought we had an even better car for today’s race. I believe that we had a car that was capable of winning today. It’s frustrating to have the day end like that, but it’s much more frustrating to run bad. The guys keep bringing really good cars to the track and I think we will have a shot at a win soon.”
