RCR Post Race Report - All-Star Race

Austin Dillon Battles to Seventh-Place Finish in Wild All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway

"I'm proud of my Richard Childress Racing Team. They gave me a solid Dow Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 tonight even though we weren't able to get the win and the million dollar paycheck. Our restarts were good and we could make a lot of ground up on the top if I got in the right line. We had a pretty good run going, but we ended up making contact with the No. 18 car and the damage from that wreck really hurt the handling of our car. After that, we ended up with more damage when the No. 11 car wrecked, and that further affected our handling. I thought I had a good restart at the end but the left-front wouldn't turn anymore from all the damage. It was still a productive weekend and we learned a lot that we can apply to the Coca-Cola 600 next weekend."

Daniel Hemric's Strong Showing in All-Star Open Comes to an End After Wreck in Segment 2

"When you come to Charlotte Motor Speedway for NASCAR All-Star weekend the only thing that matters is winning, and I am disappointed we didn't get that done tonight. This No. 8 Bass Pro Shops/Caterpillar Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was fast as can be, and we showed that by winning the pole on Friday night. We led the majority of the opening segment during the All-Star Open and I thought we were in a good spot to transfer into the All-Star Race but the caution came out and the car was just too tight to hang onto the lead on the overtime restart. We came in during the stage break and Luke Lambert and the guys put four tires on our Bass Pro Shops/Caterpillar Chevrolet and made a chassis adjustment that really improved the handling. We were racing hard with the No. 47 when we got together and it ended our day.  We had one of the fastest cars in the field and it is really a shame we didn't get the chance to race in the main event tonight."
