TEAM CHEVY POST-RACE NOTES AND QUOTES:

 

ERIK JONES, NO. 43 FOCUSFACTOR CAMARO ZL1 – Finished 8th

 

 

"It was an up and down day for the FOCUSfactor Chevy.   We had track position early and got up there towards the top five and just kind of got farther and farther back through the day a little bit.   Lost the handle a bit toward the back half of the top ten and thankfully we got that late yellow and were able to make some changes and get a good restart with about 37 laps to go and drive back up to a top 10 finish.  So, solid day, had a decent car and just needed to do things a little bit cleaner, little bit smoother and I think we could have had a better finish."

 

ALEX BOWMAN, NO. 48 ALLY CAMARO ZL1 – Finished 9th

“We just started super deep and played some strategy to get some track position back. We were too tight on the short run. Really too tight on the long run too, but the short runs hurt us a little bit more.

I’m happy to get the No. 48 Ally Chevy is back in the top-10. Can’t say enough about Greg (Ives) and the guys - we’ll keep digging as we close out the season.”

 

 

 

 

TEAM CHEVY RACE QUICK NOTES

 

 

Stage One:

·       With a competition caution on lap 20, Tyler Reddick led Chevrolet in the second position in his No. 8 Guaranteed Rate Camaro ZL1. Varying pit strategies along pit road, crew chief Randall Burnett brought Reddick down pit road for fuel and an adjustment.  

·       Mid-pack chaos ensued on the restart, collecting the No. 47 Kroger Health/SweetLeaf Camaro ZL1 of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Bringing his Chevrolet behind the wall, damage sustained ultimately ended the team’s day.

·       Michigan native, Erik Jones, led Chevrolet to the end of Stage One in the third position.

·       Team Chevy Stage One: Top-10

3rd      Erik Jones, No. 43 FOCUSfactor Camaro ZL1

6th      Ross Chastain, No. 1 Advent Health Camaro ZL1

7th      William Byron, No. 24 Liberty University Camaro ZL1

 

Stage Two:

·       Taking the green for Stage Two, Ross Chastain took the lead in his No. 1 Advent Health Camaro ZL1.

·       While the green flag stops continued, Erik Jones had cycled to the top position when a caution flew, allowing the team to pit under the caution.

·       There was a strong showing by the bowtie brigade at the end of Stage Two, with six Chevrolet drivers taking the green/white checkered flag in the top-10.
