RCR Post Race Report – STP 500

Austin Dillon and the No. 3 Symbicort (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dihydrate) Team Show Short Track Prowess at Martinsville Speedway

Finish: 11th
Start: 29th
Points: 18th

“We had our work cut out for us today. It makes for a sleepless Saturday night when you qualify far back in the field at Martinsville Speedway, but it sure makes for a fun Sunday afternoon. We had a solid No. 3 Symbicort (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dihydrate) Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 during the first run and methodically passed cars one by one. It was wild. We made it far enough up front to earn stage points at the end of Stage 1. It was difficult to keep up with changing track positions throughout the race but we made a solid day out of starting deep in the field. I hope everyone at AstraZeneca enjoyed the race. I’m really pumped about the direction this team is headed and can’t wait for Texas Motor Speedway next week.” – Austin Dillon

Martinsville Speedway Race Serves as a Learning Experience for Rookie Daniel Hemric and The Bass Pro Shops/TRACKER Boats Chevrolet Team

Finish: 27th
Start: 28th
Points: 28th

“This weekend certainly did not go as planned, but it was not for a lack of effort on the part of Luke Lambert and the guys that work on this No. 8 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet. This was my first time here since 2016 in the Truck Series, so there was a bit of a learning curve but we showed some speed in final practice on Friday. We struggled in qualifying but were able to move forward once the race went green. It just seemed like we could not catch a break today. We missed the free pass by one position a couple of times and the cautions didn’t fall where we needed them. We had to pit under green for a loose wheel late in the race, then again for a flat right front tire with less than 20 laps to go. Things didn’t go as planned, but we kept the car out of trouble and learned a lot for when we come back to Martinsville Speedway later in the year.” – Daniel Hemric
