CGR QUOTEBOARD

Kyle Larson - NASCAR Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 - Bristol Motor Speedway - April 22, 2017“Good job by everyone today, just couldn’t catch a break at the end of the race. I thought we were looking good towards the end, but a punctured tire did us in. Had a fast ENEOS Chevy and could move around, just had some bad luck.”

Kyle Larson,
No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro
