“It was a good lap. I was a bit surprised that I ran that lap because I feel like I gave up a lot of time in turns four and seven. If I had those two corners back, I feel like I could have gone quite a bit faster. We just have a really good No. 5 Chevy. Thank you to everyone on our team and everybody back at the shop and the engine shop. I’m excited about it.


For Chase (Elliott) to lap down the lap that he did, I feel like that shows how strong he is because he was really good in race trim, too. I have to figure some things out on my end. I think my car is capable of racing good, I just have to get a little bit better on the long runs. Hopefully we’ll have a good shot at the win.”
