"The hum by Verizon Chevrolet ran well for most of the race. We had some problems with understeer and that made for a tough day. Things didn't turn out the way we would have liked it to, as we definitely hoped for better results. I'm very proud of the team and how they pulled together the whole weekend and throughout today. We will continue to hold our heads up and look towards the next race in Texas."
Mid Ohio Post Race Quote: "First, I want to say that I'm really glad that Vance Welker (No. 2 car chief mechanic - outside front tire changer) is OK after the incident (in the pits between No. 7 and 21 cars) today. Secondly, the Hawk Performance Chevrolet was good all weekend and it definitely had the speed for a podium finish. For the race, we went with a different strategy and it didn't work out as well as we would have liked. We went with a different set of (Firestone) red tires that we thought would work well for us during the latter part of the race, but the balance was off after that. We have to keep our heads up and look ahead. We just need to go back and look at things this week and see what we can do differently for Pocono."
“It’s just how this year has gone. What are you going to do? The DeVilbiss Chevrolet was fast. I think we passed more people than anybody and had a great time. It really was a lot of fun. I was in a really great position to get a good finish again and the caution came out and caught us. Then we had a misfire followed by the accident. It’s just how 2016 has gone for us.”
