RCR Post Race Report – Dover 400

Austin Dillon Capitalizes on Seventh-Place Finish After Hard-Fought Day in No. 3 AAA Chevrolet Camaro ZL1





“I’m proud of the effort my team showed today at Dover International Speedway. We fought hard all day long for each position we could get with the No. 3 AAA Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. I fired off a little loose from the 14th spot, but the car got much tighter throughout the day. My entry was strong all race long, I just needed to be a bit looser for the center and exits of the corners to be able to turn like I wanted. Overall, we had a good day out on the track. We stayed on the lead lap the entire day, which was tough with the pace that was being set. This race is a fun and tough race, but we managed to get through it with a solid run and avoided getting caught up in the mess during the closing laps of the race to claim a top-10 finish. I’m really looking forward to heading to Talladega Superspeedway next weekend and continuing to build momentum with this team for the final weeks of this season.”

Overtime at Dover Equates to 17th-Place Finish for Ryan Newman and Waste Masters Solutions/22 in 22 Team





“I wanted to close out Dover with a better result than that for the Waste Masters Solutions/22 in 22 Camaro ZL1 team. We got down early and gambled on taking the wave around a few times, but we never were able to race our way back onto the lead lap. It certainly wasn’t for a lack of effort. For some reason, we needed more speed and battled loose in, tight center and loose off. Luke (Lambert, crew chief) made good calls today both with adjustments and strategy so I appreciate that. We’ll keep at it and have our fingers crossed for Talladega.”
