Quote from Juan Pablo Montoya-
“What a great run for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates today. To have both cars finish in the top-10 says a lot about how hard these guys are working to pull this program together. That caution at the end was a huge help to us and we were able to drive the Target Chevrolet to the front.”
Quote from Jamie McMurray-
“We gambled on track position at the competition caution and stayed out. Our guys kept us up front all day long. It’s great to put the McDonald’s Chevy up in the top-10. I’m happy with today’s results.”
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will head out to Fontana, Cal. next week for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway. The race will air live on FOX and radio stations affiliated with MRN on Sunday, March 25 at 2:30 pm ET.
