Details of the Day:

“Our ENEOS Chevy was pretty good today, but just too loose to really make a push for the win. The guys did a good job on pit road, but we didn’t catch the breaks we needed. It was nice to win that first stage and bank some more playoff points.” – Kyle Larson, No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro
