"The Behr Ultra Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was really fast all weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, so it's a shame that we weren't able to showcase that speed on Sunday. I could feel a vibration early in Stage 1 but wasn't able to get to pit road before we cut a right-front tire and ended up in the wall.  We still don't know exactly what happened, but I'm sure the guys will be able to make a complete diagnosis on Monday. From there, it was a long day making a trip to the garage for repairs and then playing catch-up during the race. This No. 3 team has no quit. By staying out we were able to gain several spots that we wouldn't have earned otherwise, so I'm proud of the guys for that. We're focused on getting a win and making it to the Playoffs and we still have a few chances to do that."

Stage 2 Incident Ends Daniel Hemric And The Okuma Chevrolet Team's Day Early at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

"I hate that this is how our weekend ended at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with the No. 8 Okuma Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We worked on the handling of the car all weekend long and felt like we had something for them once the green flag dropped. We were racing inside the top 15 and just waiting for the car to come to me on the run when I saw the No. 48 car dive to the left down the frontstretch to avoid oil. I just tried to stay as far to the right of the oil and hold on into Turn 1, but I don't think the No. 41 car saw the fluid and lost it underneath of me. The contact sent us spinning into the wall and caused some heavy damage to the nose and the right front, causing further damage to the motor. I feel like we had a strong car and had a solid day ahead of us, but it just wasn't our day."
