Drydene 200 Post-Race Report

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Hyperice Chevrolet

Start: 7th

Stage 1 Finish: 3rd

Stage 2 Finish: 4th

Finish: 4th

“Our Hyperice Chevy was good, but it’s all about getting better as we go through this long stretch of races. We already know we’re in the playoffs. It was a solid run of everyone at Kaulig Racing – of course you want to go out there and win, but we were in the top five all day. It was a good points day in general, but we’ve got a little bit of work to do.”

– AJ Allmendinger

Jeb Burton, No. 10 Chevy Accessories Chevrolet

Start:  13th

Stage 1 Finish: 14th

Stage 2 Finish: 13th

Finish: 11th

“We struggled all day with a loose-handling car. It was a disappointing day for sure. I know we have the speed, so we will take what we learned and move on to COTA, which should be a fun race.”

– Jeb Burton

Zane Smith, No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 9th

Stage 1 Finish: 11th

Stage 2 Finish: 36th

Finish: 36th

“It was a lot of fun while it lasted. We started in the back, and we drove up to 10th. We had a really good car. At the start of stage two, we started to get a brake issue, and the pedals started getting soft, but it was manageable. Then when I went into turns one and two on a restart, my brake pedal went all the way to the floor. We wiped out the No. 19, so I feel bad about that. I definitely think we could have had a top five today.”

– Zane Smith
