"What a night. The Okuma Chevrolet was loose to start the race but I felt confident that crew chief Danny Stockman and everyone on the No. 3 team would be able to keep up with the changing track conditions and make the adjustments needed to get us a solid finish tonight at Richmond Raceway. Unfortunately, our night became a lot more difficult after we made contact on a restart and ended up with a couple of flat tires. We fell off the lead lap when we pitted for repairs and spent the rest of the race playing catch up. We just couldn't get the break we needed to get back on the lead lap, which is a shame because we had a good Chevrolet Camaro ZL1."

Long Green Flag Runs at Richmond Raceway Result in 26th-Place Finish For Daniel Hemric and the No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet Team

"Richmond Raceway is one of my favorite race tracks and I always enjoy running here, but we just struggled tonight. We did everything we could do to work on the balance of this Caterpillar Camaro ZL1, but with a lack of cautions in the first half of the race, we didn't have enough time early to keep ourselves in a good position. We lost too much ground early on to make it up in the final stage. Even though we got behind a bit, we slowly but surely made adjustments throughout the race to help the overall balance and help us minimize what we had going on. In the end, we lost too much early to be a competitive race car. We'll get back to work and focus on how to get our package better at these types of tracks."
