BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
“We had such a strong Chevrolet from the start of the race and drove to the front right away, we didn’t’ want to fool around out there. We had strong pit stops all day, but my pit crew is mad at themselves right now because they think they had terrible stops. We never lost a spot on pit road; we even gained a few positions throughout the race. You’ve got to love having a crew that is this passionate and competitive with what they do. It’s just fun to have Shane Wilson (crew chief) back on the box and run like we did today.”
