  • Truex: “We ended up 15th at Chicagoland Speedway with our Phantom Fireworks Chevy. It wasn’t really the day we wanted. We just struggled a lot in practice and with this hot racetrack and slick pavement we just could never get a handle on our car. So we took what it gave us and came home with a 15th-place finish and we’ll go back to Daytona and hopefully have us a better run.”
