TEAM CHEVY NOTES AND QUOTES:

AUSTIN DILLON, NO. 3 AAA COATINGS CAMARO ZL1 – Finished 6th
“We had a really fast car. I think we actually had a little something for at least the top three spots. We had a little bit of a mess-up on our last pit stop and lost some track position. But we passed some good cars there at the end with Kyle (Busch) and (Brad) Keselowski. We had a really fast car. I’m really proud of these guys, the AAA team. I just wish we could have been a little further forward to see what I had. I saved a lot of my stuff for the end and was ready for that last run. But, we didn’t have enough.”

KYLE LARSON, NO. 42 MCDONALD’S CAMARO ZL1 – Sidelined when flat left rear tire caused him to hit the wall on Lap 125. Finished 37th
“It’s been a pretty crappy start to the year. We’ve had decent speed. We didn’t have great speed tonight, but on the weeks that we have speed, we still run into issues. I hate the start to the season I’ve had. On that restart, I got stuck in the middle. I probably squeezed whoever was underneath me and caused some tire damage and we had to pit to fix that. But they didn’t do a good job of pulling the fenders out and then I got a flat and was back in the wall. But, hopefully this break is a good time and we can re-group. I hate it for McDonald’s and Chevrolet and everybody on our team”.
