"We definitely had a No. 3 DOWFROST Camaro ZL1 that was capable of running in the top five today at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I'm proud of the effort, but there is room for improvement. We gave up a lot of track position throughout the day, not just from starting in the back, but we really struggled on pit stops. I felt like I got all I could out of it.  The end of the race was a little bit of a bummer. We got squeezed in the middle at the end with no where to go. We needed a top-10 finish today.  Eleventh is good, but racing my teammate to the line there I thought we would get him, but we didn't. It was a solid battle with a good points day. It's on to Richmond Raceway."

Ryan Newman and Liberty National Team Earn Second-Straight Top-10 Finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

"We had a fast Liberty National Camaro ZL1 all weekend. I was disappointed in our qualifying effort, but on Saturday we won second practice and finished fifth in Happy Hour. Despite starting 22nd, we had plenty of speed and finished 10th in Stage 1. We never really dropped below 13th. Our car really responded well the longer the green-flag run and all we made were just small chassis changes. It all came down to good restarts, especially when it counted most during the green-white-checkered finish. I'm pleased with our second-straight top 10."
