Kurt Busch, No. 1 Global Poker Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – “It feels like when the sun was out, our car had grip and I could make moves and make aggressive passes, then as the sun went down and each of our adjustments, I was just struggling for grip as the track got cooler. It doesn’t quite make sense. We did battle for good stage points today. I think we were like fifth, seventh and finished seventh. Overall our Global Poker Camaro was real racey early. Thanks to my crew and the set-up and everything that Matt McCall is doing. Normally we get better as the race goes on. Today was not the case. We just kind of plateaued and stayed there and I think others got better grip at the end or maybe we didn’t quite get it exactly racey enough. Literally, I was just kind of stuck in one groove at the end.”
