CGR QUOTEBOARD

“Really proud of our team today. We’ve all been working hard and it feels really good to get our first win of the season. Our Cessna/NTT Group Chevy was fast today and Mike Shiplett and Davin Restivo did a great job with the setup to have us competitive and a great job calling the race. The pit crew was also fast as usual. We finally got some luck today with the weather, so hopefully that luck can stay on our side. Thanks to all our partners at Target, ENEOS, ParkerStore and DC Solar for all the support, and thanks to everyone in shop for their hard work.”

Kyle Larson,
No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro
