He placed fifth in his best race thus far at Las Vegas. Dillon has had four races at Martinsville in his career, placing in the top 20 three times. Kyle Busch gets his first win of the season. He has made three starts, making the top 10 in each of those outings.
Among those finishes are three top fives, including a win at Phoenix. Racing at Martinsville will be a challenge for Harvick. We have to work on some stuff but salvaging a decent day is a good day. Aric Almirola — Finished 6th: We got behind on qualifying and that kind of set the tone.
That was my fault. I was trying to get too much and got in the fence and made another mistake and we were able to come down on pit road and get all the damage fixed and the car was back to being good again. I am proud of that effort. That was a really hard fought sixth place. Man, one of these races we will have it go smooth and we will be a contender. I am really proud of that effort. That was a really hard fought sixth. Kyle Busch — Finished 7th: Daniel Suarez — Finished 8th: We had a 15 to 20th place car.
We have to keep working hard for the rest of the season and hopefully keep improving for our next half-mile track.
Austin Dillon — Finished 11th: They brought a really fast race car. We gave up a lot of track position throughout the day, not just from starting in the back, but on pit stops we really struggled. But, you know, proud of the effort. I felt like I got out all I could out of it. Bummer at the end.
We needed a top Alex Bowman — Finished 19th: I was running 50 percent probably maybe 60 percent that first run towards the end and just mowing guys down. Jimmie Johnson — Finished 22nd: We had good speed in the car, good pit stops, everything was going well and unfortunately, cut a right-front tire when we touched the No.
So, sure, we finished higher than some guys, but any cushion we could have gotten today would have been nice. Denny Hamlin — Finished 32nd: No grip and just a bad day overall.
Ty Dillon — Finished 34th: It could have completely ended our day, but my team worked hard in the garage to get everything fixed and get me back out there. None of us wanted to quit. We still wanted to get all that we could out of this race and gain as many spots as possible.
All we can do is hold our heads up and regroup to be ready for them next week in Richmond. Jamie McMurray — Finished 35th: So, typically it will run a while. I wish I had stayed against the wall.
Chase Elliott — Finished 36th: But it popped really big and then I kind of got stopped and got to messing with it and it popped really big again.
