Austin Dillon and Richard Childress Racing's No. 3 American Ethanol Team Earn 13th-Place Finish at Pocono Raceway

"The American Ethanol Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was extremely tight through Stage 1. We made chassis adjustments that we were confident would help with handling, but when Stage 2 started it felt like I was driving a pogo stick, and by the end of Stage 2, the car was just way too loose. I have to give it to the entire No. 3 American Ethanol team for working hard and never giving up. I feel like we were actually pretty good on takeoff, so we pitted during a late-race caution for 4 scuff tires, which is all we had left. On the restart, I ended up scraping the Turn 3 Wall with the right side of my car. Luckily, I was able to continue but it killed my momentum and made the car really tight. In the end, it was a hard-earned 13th-place finish."

Ryan Newman Takes Advantage of Late-Race Restarts To Earn Second-Straight Top-10 Finish in Bass Pro Shops / Cabela's Camaro ZL1 at Pocono Raceway

"I don't ever give up and this No. 31 Bass Pro Shops / Cabela's Camaro ZL1 team doesn't either. Our race was pretty frustrating to me. I knew we had a top-10 car, but we got blocked quite a bit which caused us to lose momentum and track position, especially during the middle portions of the race. All and all another solid job in the pits for the pit crew. For a while there, our track position didn't reflect the kind of Chevy Luke Lambert and the team prepared for me, but it doesn't matter now. We finished eighth and we'll certainly take that result."
