Kurt Busch, No. 1 Monster Energy Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – “I feel like we had a great day with our Monster Energy Chevy, I just didn’t deliver the win. I felt like I had it in my hands and I let it drop. I didn’t make the right moves at the end to bring our Monster Energy Chevy a win. I feel like I did not execute on what I needed to do to win the race, but all-in-all it was a great day for Chevrolet and the teamwork from everybody with the brand to work together. I just didn’t know what lane I needed to pick going into turn three and I got swallowed up in the draft, but another top-10 finish for our team is a good day.”

 MENCS teams will head to Dover Speedway next week for the Gander RV 400 on Sunday, May 5. FS1, MRN affiliates and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90 will have live coverage beginning at 2:00pm ET.
