- The caution flag was shown five today, for a total of 23 laps. The lead changed 24 times among 10 drivers.
“We really fought with the car being loose on entry most of the day. We had a good McDonald’s Chevy and I was finally able to try and start working the high groove late in the race and that helped us to pick up several positions on that last run. It was a tough day battling the heat, but the guys on pit road did a good job making adjustments all day on our pit stops. I got some damage to the nose on the car early in the race, so to be able to get that repaired and overcome the loss of track position I felt pretty good with at 12th-place result. I thought we had a top-10 car, so we just missed by a little.”
