Kurt Busch, No. 1 Monster Energy Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – “I expected to do a little better at Ganassi on road courses this year.. It shows that (Kyle) Larson has done well to improve and (Jamie) McMurray was a solid road racer, is what it proves. We got beat by the same exact cars that we got beat by at Sonoma. So, we’ve got to keep plugging away. I’m not satisfied at all, but we pushed and pushed and pushed and that’s all it had. A little tight here. A little loose there. Thanks to everybody at Ganassi for working hard; and to Monster Energy and Chevrolet. A Top 10, hey, we’ll take it.”
