Austin Dillon on Louden:

“We had a fast Freighliner Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and I’m proud of Justin Alexander and everyone at RCR and ECR for giving us everything we needed today. The only thing we were missing was track position. We had to start at the rear of the field but did a good job of working our way into the top 15 or so in Stage 1. In Stage 2 we took right-side tires during a pit stop, which positioned us in the lead for a restart with just a few laps remaining in the Stage. I just couldn’t get going on two tires and ended up losing the lead, but we were still able to maintain enough track position to earn some Stage points. We pitted for fuel-only during a caution in Stage 3 that put us in a great position at the end of the race to go for it while a lot of other teams were in fuel conservation mode. It was amazing how fast the Freightliner Chevrolet was during that long green flag run at the end. We just needed about 20 more laps at the end to be in contention.

Overall, it was a solid day for this Freightliner team.”
