Kurt Busch, No. 1 Global Poker Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – “We had a back and forth kind of day with the Global Poker Chevy. After about 20 laps into a run the car would just get really tight. We battled trying to get the handle through the bumps in turns three and four most of the day. I feel like I just didn’t give good enough feedback to make the right adjustments. We’ll ante-up with a solid run next weekend at Daytona.”

 

MENCS teams will head to Daytona International Speedway next week for the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday, Jul. 6. NBC, MRN affiliates and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90 will have live coverage beginning at 7:30pm ET.
