Sheldon Creed and the No. 2 Whelen Chevrolet Team Show Speed at Homestead-Miami Speedway





“We had a fast Whelen Chevrolet today at Homestead-Miami Speedway. For 20-25 laps at the beginning of the run, my car would not handle and I would lose ground to the leaders. My Richard Childress Racing team worked on the car all day and at times I ran lap times faster than the leader. When everyone slowed down enough to where the bottom line didn’t matter, I could run the fence and that seemed to fix any handling issues that I had with my Camaro. At that point, I could go fast and pass cars anywhere on the race track. I needed the race to go green when I was running fifth with 40 laps to go. I felt like we had a good shot at winning the race if that were to happen. Just a frustrating end to the day. The only goal now is to go win the race at Martinsville Speedway next weekend.”

Austin Hill and the No. 21 United Rentals Chevrolet Team Battle to a Fourth-Place Finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway





“We really fought the balance of our United Rentals Chevrolet throughout the entire race today at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The car was very loose on entry, loose back to throttle, and was really hard to commit back to the throttle. That’s where I was getting beat because other guys could turn under and drive up beside me. We fought that all day. My Richard Childress Racing guys did a good job on pit road and gaining spots for us to have a shot at us. I hated to see the caution come out there after that one lap when I was beside the No. 1, because I think if I could have gotten in clean air, who knows what could have happened. Overall, it’s a solid day for our No. 21 team. It’s unfortunate that a Playoff guy who was underneath us won the race. When we go to Martinsville Speedway next week, we have to have our stuff together. We have a lot of work to do before next weekend.”
