Well, there was drastic improvement by JGR with the new cars last night and a solid and quiet night for the 20 team. They were competative though something Joey wasn't in the first race with this new car. Looks like the PRS teams have that new car figured out quickly.

Quote:How did your final adjustments help your car toward the end of the race?

“We were hoping to make the car better and we just weren’t good enough. There were times we shined and times we got out front. I looked at us as a third-place car for most of the race. The two cars that weren’t leading the race the whole night ended up winning this thing. That’s crazy – they did a good job adjusting on the race car and got their stuff faster. We just kind of maintained all night and it was all about restarts. If you started on the bottom then you were pretty much screwed and it was hard to get back up there and have a decent run.

If you started on the top then you were able to get a couple spots. I figure if you started fourth then that was like starting second – that’s what I was figuring there. Either way, we’re better than what we were in Michigan with these new Nationwide cars and we got our GameStop Toyota a little bit better now. We’ll go back to work and we still have a little ways to go. We’re getting these things better and we’re getting closer now.”

Quote:Joey Logano Thoughts:

“We had a really good GameStop Toyota tonight. It was the best car we’ve had in the four new car races this year for sure. We’ve still got a little bit of work to do to catch to a couple of the other teams, but we really made some leaps and bounds over the last new car races we’ve run. I think all of the testing we’ve been doing helped with that. The pit crew did a great job tonight and gained us a few positions. We made some good adjustments, but we just needed a little bit more.

“Starting on the inside lane really hurt all night long. You could stay with the car on the outside of you, but it was rare that you were going to be able to make a complete pass. It was really only going to happen if you got a heck of a push from the guy behind you, and even then it was a little tough. The top lane was the place to be for sure, and you saw that a lot on the restarts. The guys up top would often make up three or four positions. We found ourselves always running in a spot that would put us inside on a restart, and that is deflating. Sometimes, you actually wanted to let someone go just so you could start on the outside if a caution came out.

“All in all, it was a good night. We just need a little bit more, but we were right there. That makes me feel good about going into next year. Now, we just need to win a couple more races in the current car before the season is over.”

Kevin Kidd Quotes:

“We had a good bounce back from what was kind of a disappointing week last weekend in California. The guys really worked hard, and we had a pretty good car. The pit crew did a great job tonight, and it showed by gaining positions on a couple of stops. We just didn’t find ourselves in the right places at the right times. I think there late in the race, if we would have started on the outside lane on those late restarts, we would have had a shot to win the race. But you can’t do anything about that. You are fighting for positions and if you are third or fifth when the cautions comes out, then you have to play the cards you are dealt.

“The guys really worked hard all week long getting this new car to where we got it. We just needed to make a few more adjustments, but we were close. Joey said that handle of the car was good; we just needed a little more speed. Overall, I think we are happy with where we ended. Obviously, we want to win the race and be in contention. But we made a lot of strides with the new car tonight and I think with a little more work and a little more testing, we’ll have our new car program in the same position that we are now with the current cars.”
