Chris Buescher and the No. 37 Natural Light team battled hot, slick racetrack conditions in the desert to finish 23rd today at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The team ran a better second-half of the race that saw the fastest lap times of the day.
CHRIS BUESCHER QUOTES:
"It was a decent day for us in the No. 37 Natural Light Chevrolet," Buescher said. "The track was the warmest it had been all weekend, and it really made our car loose through the run, even when it started out tight in the corners. We're still working on our 1.5-mile program at JTG Daugherty Racing, but we finally get to test the short track program next weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. I really like racing at Phoenix, and am excited to see what we can bring off the truck and continue building our team for the season."
TRENT OWENS, CREW CHIEF QUOTE:
"It was a good day of learning for the No. 37 Natural Light Chevrolet today at Las Vegas Motor Speedway," Owens said. "We had a decent car in race trim, and just couldn't get the right speed in qualifying trim to get a front starting spot. The car was definitely better the second half of the race, but by then it was difficult to catch up. Our teammate (AJ Allmendinger) tested at Phoenix earlier this year, so we've got some notes to start out with and build our short track program beginning next weekend. We'll continue on with the West Coast Swing."
