"We just fought a tight Camaro all day long. It's Bristol, and track position is everything. We got caught back in traffic and fought to stay on, and then tried to get back on, the lead lap. We'll head to California and race even harder next weekend."
TY DILLON QUOTE:
"We battled all weekend with this Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet and came up with a great finish today. On that last restart, I knew we had the speed to gain a few positions and by running a different line we ended up having a great finish. I couldn't be more proud of Danny, our guys, and the team. We made the right calls on pit road and went up against some really good race cars."
Cale Conley Impresses in Nationwide Series Debut at Bristol Motor Speedway
Cale Conley turned in an impressive performance in his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut for Richard Childress Racing with an 11th-place finish in Saturday afternoon's running of the Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Conley took the green flag from the 12th position and showed consistency and patience en route to a solid 11th-place finish. The Vienna, W. Va.-native fought a loose condition throughout the early stages of the 300-lap race. Conley fell a lap down, but continued to battle inside the top-15. The caution flag was displayed on lap 94; giving Conley the chance to bring his No. 33 OKUMA America Chevrolet to the attention of his crew for four fresh tires, fuel and an air pressure adjustment. The yellow flag flew with 40 laps remaining to give the 21-year old rookie the chance to race back onto the lead lap. Conley battled hard as the laps wound down to earn an 11th-place finish in his first Nationwide Series event of his career..
Start - 12th Finish - 11th Laps Led - 0 Points - N/A
CALE CONLEY QUOTE:
"What a race. I can't thank everyone at RCR and OKUMA America enough for today. Nick (Harrison - crew chief) and the No. 33 guys put together a great Chevrolet Camaro, so that made things easier. I've now experienced my first Bristol race. It's hot, sweaty, there were a lot of nerves, but it was a blast. I didn't really know what to expect so I'm happy with how everything went today."
Brendan Gaughan Battles His Way to a Sixth-Place Finish at Thunder Valley
Start - 20th Finish - 7th Laps Led - 0 Points - 6th
BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
"Great job from Shane (Wilson, crew chief) and the No. 62 boys today for giving me such a good race car at Bristol Motor Speedway. We were tight early, but we were able to make up a lot of ground on the long runs. This just proves that when you are at Richard Childress Racing, you get top of the line equipment. We went from 20th to seventh with barely a scratch on the car, we consider that a great day at Bristol."
