McMurray quotes:

“Just a really good day for our GEARWRENCH Chevy. We were a top-10 car all day, so it was great to lockdown that seventh-place result. We unloaded pretty fast yesterday and it was good to stay up there all weekend. We had a really clean race today along with good fuel mileage to put us in position for a strong result. Thankfully we avoided any bad luck and the guys did a nice job on pit road.”
