CGR QUOTEBOARD

“It was great to get our ENEOS Chevy back in victory lane, and really happy to get a win here in Texas. The car was pretty tight for most of the day, but Shiplett and Davin did a great job calling for adjustments today and the pit crew did a great making fast changes all day. Couldn’t have gotten the win today without their solid effort. That last restart I got a great push and was able to get out to a decent lead and hold on for the win after brushing the wall a bit late in the run. Thanks to ENEOS for their continued support of our team, and thanks to everyone at the shop for building fast cars. This has been a good year for our team, and we’re looking forward to closing it out on a high note.”

Kyle Larson,
No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro
