RCR Post Race Report - Goody's Fast Relief 500

Austin Dillon and the No. 3 Dow-Dow Corning Team Show Speed at Martinsville Speedway, Finish 17th
"We started the race with a challenge after we qualified 32nd on Friday but the entire Dow-Dow Corning team did a great job of giving me everything I needed to get the No. 3 Chevrolet up front. As we raced into the top-10, we were consistently clocked as one of the fastest cars. We were on the charge and made it as high as seventh before the caution was displayed in the middle of one of our fastest runs. As the race progressed, the track bar adjuster started to give us problems. It made it really difficult to work on the car's handling and I wasn't able to use it at all. Eventually, we were pinned a lap down. It's a shame because we had a fast car all weekend."

Paul Menard and the No. 27 Dutch Boy Paints/Menards Chevrolet Team Race To 25th-Place Finish at Martinsville Speedway
"The car just wouldn't turn today. We made adjustments to fix it but nothing seemed to stick for the long run. We had the handling better after final practice on Saturday, so we came a long way from Friday to today's race. I'm not sure what caused the balance issues, but we'll go back to the shop and look at our notes on Monday. I'm proud of this Dutch Boy Paints/Menards team for not giving up today."

Long Green Flag Runs Hamper Ryan Newman's Strong Martinsville Speedway Performance
"We had a good Caterpillar Chevrolet during the first half of the event and we were able to race our way to as high as fifth. However, we had a few lengthy green-flag runs where we fought a tight-handling condition through the corners and that hindered us a bit. We never got the final caution to be able to adjust before the end of the race. We'll move on from today and get ready for Texas Motor Speedway."
