5-Hour Energy 400 | Kansas Speedway

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series | Race 11 of 36 | Saturday, May 10, 2014

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (May 11, 2014) – Cole Whitt and the No. 26 Iowa Chop House Toyota Camry team finished 28th at Kansas Speedway on Saturday night.  After challenges with the handling of his racecar early in the event, Whitt’s BK Racing team dialed in their car and the Sunoco Rookie contender easily drove to a top-30 finish.

Whitt rolled off 36th for the 5-Hour Energy 400.  Challenged by the handling of his car throughout the opening laps of the race, Whitt initially fell through the field while his team strategized the changes they needed to make to their Toyota Camry.  The Iowa Chop House team made a series of adjustments throughout the opening pit stops, which allowed Whitt to drive back inside the top 35.

The BK Racing team took one last swing at their car with a late-race track bar adjustment.  The change proved to increase the drivability of the No. 26 Iowa Chop House Toyota Camry, and allowed Whitt to race back inside the top 30.  By the time the checkered flag waved, Whitt was scored in the 28th position.

“I’m proud of the effort of my Iowa Chop House team tonight,” commented Whitt.  “There were a lot of guys that ran into problems or were caught up in accidents, but we were able to avoid all of that and drive to a clean finish.  I feel confident about where we’re at, and I’m excited that we seem to get better every week.  We have some back-to-back races coming up at Charlotte, which will give us a great learning opportunity with a lot of practice time.  I’m looking forward to that.”
