Austin Dillon Drives Ruud Chevrolet to Fourth-Place Finish at Texas Motor Speedway

“I stayed out of trouble on the track which was one big key today. Track position was everything, really. The No. 20 was probably the fastest car. We were a little bit loose. We had to work on the Ruud Chevrolet throughout the race to try and get it closer to where we wanted to be. Today was just a tough race. I’m proud of everyone on the No. 2 Ruud team for sticking with it to bring home a fourth-place finish.”

Ty Dillon Battles Loose No. 3 Bulwark/Oncor Chevy in Closing Laps at Texas to Bring Home Top-10 Finish

“It was kind of a weird day, which we knew it could be with the repave. Our No. 3 Bulwark/Oncor Chevrolet was really fast in practice, but with the surface being a one-groove track, it’s hard to make the moves you need to during the race with 39 other cars on track. Our main goal was to take advantage of opportunities for track position gains whenever we could, so we made two stops for right-side tires at the end of the race. We got up to fifth place, but I just got way too loose in that last run with the fresh right-side tires and couldn’t pass people. Our team worked hard, and we definitely had the speed we needed. We’ll just know what to expect when we come back to Texas in November.”

Daniel Hemric Finishes 32nd in the No. 21 Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff Chevrolet After Early Accident

“Days like this show how much fight this team has. I’m really proud of all these guys at RCR. Huge thanks to Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff for coming on board again this weekend. We’re 0-for-2 every time Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff is on the car, and I hate that. We’ve qualified well every time they’ve been on this No. 21 Chevrolet, we just need to figure out how to finish well with them. I’m not sure what happened early in the race. That was probably one of the first times I can remember just crashing on my own. It was definitely the fastest I’ve ever spun out. Crew chief Danny Stockman and the entire crew did a great job of tuning on this thing after practice. We leaned on our teammates to figure out what package they had, and I feel like we made the most of our Chevy going into the race. It was unfortunate circumstances there, but I’m proud of how we fought to the end and saw the checkered flag. Now it’s on to Bristol.”

Brandon Jones and the No. 33 Freightliner Team Battle Back to Secure 15th Place Finish at Texas Motor Speedway

“We had a really good handling No. 33 Freightliner Chevrolet Camaro this weekend. We just seem to be having a no-luck season. Once I figured out the reconfiguration in practice, we were able to get the balance dialed in real well. Unfortunately, someone hit us when I was avoiding that wreck in the middle of the race so that cost us some track position. The damage wasn’t too bad so we were able to finish Stage Two and grab our first bonus points of the season. We just didn’t get the finish we deserved due to how the pit stops cycled through, so we’ll keep working hard at it.”

Mid-Race Incident Slows Drive of the South Point Chevrolet Resulting in 19th-Place Finish

“Apparently our finishes are getting better the further east we travel. A rough West Coast swing and a slightly better race at Texas Motor Speedway has me ready to go to Bristol Motor Speedway and get a good finish. We had a decent South Point Chevrolet today. I felt like right when we got in good racing order and were moving forward, we ended up in a traffic jam. We did a good job missing the brunt of that incident thanks to spotter Stevie Reeves. The guys did a great job on pit road repairing damage and getting us back out there. The damage to the nose definitely hurt our aero package. It was just a fight the rest of the day. The car went loose on entry and tight through the middle. Loose and tight at the same time is the hardest obstacle to overcome during a race. But we didn’t quit and kept fighting. I’m ready to head east and find better finishes.”
