CGR QUOTEBOARD

“Our race tonight started off pretty good, but didn’t end the way we wanted it to. The ENEOS Chevy was pretty strong to start the race and was handling good enough to lead some laps. I don’t know what happened, but around the midpoint of the race the car got really tight and we couldn’t run upfront like we had earlier in the night. We’ll get the car back to the shop and figure out what was going on to get better for next time.”

Kyle Larson, No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro
