RCR Post Race Report – Busch Clash

Austin Dillon and the Symicort / RigUp Team Survive Wild Busch Clash at Daytona with Second-Place Finish 



“I thought we were going to end up victorious in our Symbicort (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dihydrate) / RigUp Chevrolet today. At the end, there were just no cars left. I thought that we were in the best position with the cleanest car. When it came down to it, we drove from the back up to second by the white flag and I was racing Ryan Newman. My spotter did a pretty good job of telling me to get up, but I felt pretty confident that we had the pace we needed to keep the lead. When Newman blocked me low it just killed our run and those guys flew by. We probably should have been working with the No. 42 Chevrolet during the red flag to put a better plan together to try and win. Justin Alexander and I have a pretty good record of winning our first races together. We’ve done it in the Xfinity Series for our first race together, and in the NASCAR Cup Series for our first race together, and we almost extended that record today. Still, second is a pretty good start to Speedweeks.”
