I’m all for hard racing, but it’s just frustrating when he lets four guys in a row go. We were faster than him and just kept hitting on him and hitting on him. He flipped me off a couple of times and then I just kept trying to pass him on the inside. I could never clear him and I just got tight underneath him and drove up the race track a little bit and got my right-front up into him and spun out and hit the inside wall. It’s definitely frustrating. I hate it for all the 60 guys. They’ve had to work on a lot of race cars this year. I felt like we had decent speed tonight and maybe could have contended for a top-10, but the day got cut short.”]]> http://www.speedwaymedia.com/2018/08/18/ford-performance-nascar-bristol-xfinity-post-race-quotes-3/feed/ 0 Kyle Larson Dominates the Xfinity Series Race at Bristol http://www.speedwaymedia.com/2018/08/17/kyle-larson-dominates-the-xfinity-series-race-at-bristol/ http://www.speedwaymedia.com/2018/08/17/kyle-larson-dominates-the-xfinity-series-race-at-bristol/#respond Sat, 18 Aug 2018 03:33:23 +0000 http://www.speedwaymedia.com/?p=138885 There is nothing like a night race at Bristol Motor Speedway and the Food City 300 was no exception.
