Matt Kenseth, No. 42 Credit One Bank Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

A lot of challenges again today. We got some damage early, on pit road. We got some damage and lost our track position. We were trying to battle back from that. I felt like we were pretty close to being a top-10 car and got run into again near the very end, which knocked the front end out of alignment. Kind of a disappointing day, but the finish could be worse. I feel like there are some things that we improved on; we learned about our Credit One Bank Camaro, its fast, we’ve just got to put a whole race together. I’m looking forward to going to Martinsville Wednesday night”.
