2021 Daytona 500 Post-Race Report

February 15, 2021

Kaz Grala, No. 16 Hyperice Camaro ZL1 1LE

Start: 40th

Finish: 28th

“It was an unfortunate end to an otherwise great day here at the Daytona 500. Our Hyperice Camaro ZL1 1LE was fast – it did everything we needed it to do. We were being nice and conservative, and in my opinion, had a great strategy called by Kaulig Racing. I think we were putting ourselves in a prime position to be able to go out there and get a top-10 finish at the end of this thing. We had a clean car, and we were playing it safe. We were definitely ready to capitalize at the end, and unfortunately ended up scuffing the wall and cutting a tire down in one of the wrecks. It was just a freak accident and the tire carcass ended up wrapping around the brake line, cutting it, and our right rear caught on fire. Unfortunately, it wasn’t something we were able to fix in the amount of time that we had on pit lane. It’s crazy to have such a weird thing take us out of the race. It was definitely disappointing, because I know that we were going to have a great finish to the race if it weren’t for that.”
