Ty Dillon, No. 42 Allegiant Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Ty Dillon Post-Race Thoughts: “What a great day for Petty GMS as an organization. Erik (Jones) and the No. 43 boys had their car dialed in and got an excellent result. The No. 42 guys and I capitalized and executed to end up with a solid finish. After not running a mile and a half track in the Cup Series in almost two years, I’ll take 17th. Our Allegiant Chevrolet struggled over the bumps today and I lacked the security on entry that I was looking for. But Jerame (Donley, crew chief) and the guys kept working on it all day, the pit crew had consistent, mistake free stops, and we gave it our all. We know areas that we can improve in also, which will only make us better as we move forward this season. Proud of the effort and our team.”
Erik Jones, No. 43 FOCUSfactor Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Erik Jones Post-Race Thoughts: “It was good race. It feels good to be interviewed after the race, too. It’s awesome, but it’s also frustrating. You’re that close and you have a car that you feel like can do it. The No. 43 FOCUSfactor Chevrolet definitely had it today. It was a matter of getting up front and taking advantage of clean air, and we did that a couple of times. A couple restarts just didn’t go our way. I probably could have done a better job here and there, and it just didn’t add up. I just haven’t raced up front a lot in the last year and a half. There are some things I need to be better at. Hopefully I have a lot of time to work on that. We want to keep running upfront and if we keep doing that, we’re going to win some races. I’m really proud of this whole Petty GMS group.”
