Kurt Busch, No. 1 Monster Energy Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – “We had a good day. I was just hoping to get a top-five and came home just a bit short. The growth rate of this team and the adjustments we’re making, I couldn’t be happier. I’m smiling as I’m driving the car. It’s so much fun to toss it down in there with all this downforce and the horsepower, you just pitch it sideways and see if it’s going to stick. But, we know we’ve got our work cut-out for us. It’s awesome to run up front. I’m smiling. But, we know at our growth rate, we’re not on a plateau yet. I’ve got to keep going.”
