CGR QUOTEBOARD

Kyle Larson ponders his race“Had a fun race tonight and was able to get the top working pretty early. We had a really strong ENEOS Chevy on long runs, but some of how the strategy played out at the end didn’t work in our favor. We were just too loose on those last few restarts to pull off the win”

Kyle Larson,
No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro
