21st today at +Dover International Speedway - The +GoDaddy Chevrolet was just too loose for most of the race. The guys made some good adjustments, and we ended up catching a couple breaks with cautions and took home a decent finish. #NASCAR

Unlucky today - We were on track to have a potentially good finish. It was kind of back and forth with the two- and four-tire cycle that was happening, but we were definitely right there on the long run. It sucks. It seems like nothing ever goes wrong on those days that you are just trudging along in 22nd – it happens when you are having a good race.
With that said, when you get in the midst of the drivers that are in the Chase, they are pushing hard. I’m sure everybody is feeling that pressure to get to the next round. I don’t blame them. I don’t think that it was anyone’s fault. I probably wasn’t quite as quick as I needed to be because I was a little loose on two tires. The No. 31 was pushing hard and I know at one point the No. 24 got into him, so I don’t think anyone was intentionally doing anything, but I’m sure there was some intentional hard racing. #NASCAR

Starting 14th tonight at +Richmond Raceway - The GoDaddy Chevy was tight in the center of the corner and free off. I’d hoped we’d make it to the final round, but we ended up with a decent starting spot and I think we have a good car for the race. #NASCAR
Last night was frustrating. The GoDaddy Chevy was so strong in practice, but it just wouldn’t turn the center of the corner at all at the start of the race. The guys did a great job of getting it a lot more manageable by the end of the race. If we’d had the car we had the second half of the race during the first half of the race, we would have had a great night. I’m glad we were at least able to get back in the top-20 there at the end. #NASCAR
