“Another tough day for me and the 42 team. We had a lot of things go right today with good stops in the pits and some runs with really good speed, but couldn’t turn it into a good finish. So, all in all a frustrating day that ended without the finish we could’ve had. We’ll keep working hard as we look forward to Atlanta and hopefully put together a better race next weekend.”


NCS teams will head to Atlanta Motor Speedway next week for the Folds of Honor QuickTrip 400 on Sunday, Jun. 7. FOX, PRN affiliates and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90 will have live coverage beginning at 3 p.m. ET.
