RCR NCS Race Recap: Talladega Superspeedway

NKP #8: Kyle Busch, Richard Childress Racing, Cheddar’s Chevrolet Camaro; #24: William Byron, Hendrick Motorsports, Liberty University Chevrolet Camaro; #16: Shane Van Gisbergen, Kaulig Racing, Wendy’s Chevrolet Camaro

“Great job by RCR and ECR for once again bringing a fast Chevy to a speedway race. We were able to qualify in the top-five in our Bass Pro Shops/TRACKER Off Road Chevrolet, lead laps and earn stage points. I wish our finish could show just how good our car was. We raced within the top-15 most of the day, but man was it frustrating to be out there running half throttle to try and conserve fuel. We tried to avoid the “Big One” by hanging back at the end of the race, but it didn’t work out in our favor. Speedway racing is unpredictable. We’ll regroup and head to the Monster Mile next weekend.”

“We had a fast Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Camaro all weekend. We qualified well on Saturday and that’s a credit to everyone at ECR and RCR. Crew chief Randall Burnett and the guys made good calls to keep us in contention throughout the race on Sunday, and we were able to lead laps and earn stage points. I made a move to try to get to the front at the end because I saw the outside line had momentum. It didn’t work out and then we got caught up in a big pileup on the last lap. It’s really frustrating because if you ride in line you finish where you were, but if you try to race for the win you end up finishing in the back.”
