IN CK’S WORDS
“Wow, kind of a crazy night. I’m really proud of the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing Team to come back here to Texas Motor Speedway after a busy few weeks and finish with a¬†good result. I don’t think we were particularly¬†strong in June, but we learned a bit from our teammates and came back to run inside the top-10. The guys were solid in pit lane, the strategy calls were right on and we were knocking on the door of a top-five. It got a little crazy there at the end, and I couldn’t quite get our lap back under those yellows. But overall, it was a good day and a good result for points.”

IN CK’S WORDS
“We’re obviously disappointed with that run for the No. 83 Tresiba Chevrolet. We had a much faster car in that first practice session, so we’re not exactly sure what happened in that run to make us so much slower. Where you qualify is definitely important here, but it’s not the end-all-be-all on any oval. Tonight’s practice will be really important for everyone, but especially us since we’ll be starting further back and will need to work harder to move through the field.”
