TEAM CHEVY POST-RACE QUOTES: Ricky Stenhouse Jr., No. 47 Boost/Thomas’/Philadelphia Camaro ZL1 Finished: 4th “Not a bad day, but it was somewhat frustrating every now and then just kind of being gridlocked there but you know our team we came in with a plan. We stuck to our plan and glad that it all worked out. I feel like we’ve been close all year with different things and you know just nothing seems to work out so for it all to come together for the Thomas Bagels and Philadelphia Cream Cheese Camaro feels really good and we’ve got a really good month of racing coming up for us at really good racetracks that we enjoy and run well at so hopefully this will be a boost to our season and and kind of a Kickstart to get us going and just see what happens.”
Stenhouse Jr. on his first top-five finish of the season: “It feels really good. I feel like we’ve been better as of lately than where we’ve finished. A lot of things have contributed to some bad finishes, so it feels really good to come out of here with a top-five finish. We did a lot of preparation this week of strategy, and I felt like we played everything perfectly. We saved the most fuel just about all day long. Our No. 47 Boost/Thomas’/Philadelphia Camaro was really good. I wanted to be up there battling for the win, but at this point, a top-five finish is nice.”

Alex Bowman, No. 48 Ally Camaro ZL1 Finished: 5th How did your day go here at Talladega Superspeedway? “Not amazing, honestly. Not that we didn’t have a good No. 48 Ally Camaro or good strategy, just kind of didn’t have the openings I needed at times. There was so much riding around saving fuel. And then when we finally all would go run around wide-open, there weren’t really many moves to make, and we were buried and stuck on the bottom. We just never had a hole to get up or do anything.
We ended up with a top-five finish. That’s great – obviously that’s great for the team. It wasn’t our best speedway race, but still a solid top-five.”

Anthony Alfredo, No. 62 Dude Wipes Camaro ZL1 Finished: 6th “We had an awesome No. 62 Dude Wipes Chevrolet Camaro today. I’m really proud of Beard Motorsports and everyone on this team. They work really hard to come to a couple races a year, and when they do it, they do it right and they know they have a shot to win. So I take a lot of pride in being the one behind the wheel. I hope I can do a lot more with them.
We had an awesome Chevy today. We drove to the front and led some laps. At the end there, we were just kind of boxed-in. I couldn’t really do a whole lot, especially when that third lane formed. I wanted to join that party earlier, but I was just trapped on the bottom. I pushed as hard as I could. In typical Talladega superspeedway racing fashion, it got a little crazy coming to the line. I just yanked it hard left, flew through the grass and somehow opened my eyes and I crossed the line in sixth.”

William Byron, No. 24 Liberty University Camaro ZL1 Finished: 7th “Today was just a lot of strategy, so I felt like we were just constantly trying to play the fuel-savings. My No. 24 Liberty University Chevy team did a really good job getting us out front for the stage finishes to give us a shot at the stage wins. In Stage Two, we just botched that a little bit, and in the final stage, we just got caught up by the caution and we didn’t have the track position at the end.
Still happy to come home with a seventh-place finish. We’ll go to Dover (Motor Speedway) and have a really good Chevy there.”

Daniel Hemric, No. 31 Cirkul Camaro ZL1 Finished: 9th “I’m really proud of how far we’ve come with this No. 31 Cirkul Chevrolet from Daytona, as far as speed goes. It’s hard to make gains there with everyone being so close. We qualified right at about 30th in Daytona, and then we came here and qualified inside the top 20, which is a big deal as we saw today with fuel saving. You have to have a faster racecar that lets you save more fuel. I’m proud of this team and to have had a clean race.”

Ross Chastain, No. 1 Jockey Outdoors by Luke Byran Camaro ZL1 Finished: 13th “Everything lined up OK there at the end. I wanted to be one more spot further forward – obviously one of those front couple of lanes on the bottom. We all just checked-up there. For me, I only know what happened from my seat, and I over-corrected big in the tri-oval. Hate that – we could have gotten across the line there in the top-five, but we had a shot. We’ll move onto Dover (Motor Speedway).”

Daniel Suarez, No. 99 Tootsies Orchid Lounge Camaro ZL1 Finished: 27th “Just disappointing. I thought we were in a good position in the end pushing Ross there at the end but I’m not sure what happened and we were spun. We battled through some issues today and we were pretty good in the end. I can’t wait to get to Dover.”
