“We had a really good Dow Salutes Veterans Chevrolet today at the Brickyard and it was fun to be able to earn Stage points in Stages 1 and 2 and lead laps. Our Chevy was handling really well all day so we really only needed to make small adjustments throughout the race. Justin Alexander made great calls to help us get track position. Clean air is huge. We made the decision to stay out when the caution flag was displayed at the end of Stage 3. That put us in a great position for a two-lap shootout to the checkered flag. We were racing for sixth but tangled in Turn 4 coming to the checkers and ended up backing into the wall. Definitely not the finish we wanted or deserved today, but I’m proud of our effort. We had a lot of positives with earning Stage points and leading laps. It was also an honor to race with the names of 1200 veterans on the car on Independence Day weekend. I want to thank Dow for helping us to honor the true heroes.”
