RCR NCS Race Recap: Circuit Of The Americas

Austin Dillon and the No. 3 Get Bioethanol Chevrolet Team Earn Stage Points in Hard-Fought Circuit of the Americas Race




“Despite our best efforts, the No. 3 Get Bioethanol Chevrolet team didn’t get the finish we wanted at the Circuit of the Americas today. We earned fifth-place stage points in the first stage, but then had to come from the rear to start Stage 2. It’s tough to do that. We ended up with damage to the front end of our Chevy, and we just never really recovered from that. We got spun and then had to save fuel that last run. We have to figure out what we could have done better in order to be in position to go hard during the last run of the race. Thank you to the RCR team for never giving up. We’ll just keep plugging along.”

Kyle Busch Scores Ninth-Place Finish in Mark III Employee Benefits Chevrolet at Circuit of the Americas




“We had a good finish today in the Mark III Employee Benefits Chevrolet and our guys on pit road were consistent all day. Early in the race, we were loose and losing a lot of grip on the long run. We worked our way into the top-five early in Stage 2 when we got spun out and lost a lot of track position, which put us behind. Crew chief Randall Burnett all the guys on the No. 8 team made great calls, especially on fuel mileage at the end of the race. Hopefully, this gets us back on track.”
