RCR Post Race Report – Alabama 500

Austin Dillon Captures Second Pole of Season and Collects Stage Points at Talladega Superspeedway

Finish: 14th
Start: 1st
Points: 13th

“I thought that Chevrolet did a really good job today. The racing was pretty good. We didn’t tear up too much stuff, and with all of the downforce this new package has, we could really move around the racetrack. If you did get hit, you could try to save it; so I thought that allowed for really good racing today. I chose the outside lane on the last run. Kyle Larson and I were committed to each other, but I don’t think the outside works as well with the spoilers we have on our cars right now. There’s just not enough grip until the end of a run. At the end of a run, it becomes stronger. I’m proud of everyone on this No. 3 Dow Chevrolet team from their efforts this weekend. We’re headed to Dover to try and earn a win for RCR and ECR.” -Austin Dillon

“It was a successful day for us, that’s for sure. Thanks to everyone on this No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team for sticking with me all year; this was the run we needed. We earned some stage points, brought home a clean Camaro, and scored our first top-five finish as a group. We weren’t able to be too aggressive all day but a great job by Chevrolet and all of our guys to stay committed. We did everything we could through the restarts and green flag stops to stay together and fortunately we were able to keep our Chevrolet on the bottom and had a couple of us lined up there together in the closing laps. The racing was wild. I tried to stay dedicated and patient throughout the race, and that was the most difficult thing for us. I’m proud of all the effort put forth by all of the Chevrolet teams and drivers to get Chevy back in Victory lane, that helps us all on the manufacturer side of things. Hopefully these fans enjoyed the show; I know I did.” -Daniel Hemric
