ATLANTA – Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 14 Rush Truck Centers/Cummins Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) finished 16th at Quaker State 400 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, after beginning the race in the 14th position.
Chase Elliott took the checkered flag under caution during Sunday’s race after it had been littered with wrecks and multiple caution flags after starting in the pole position and leading the race most of the way.
With only seven races remaining in the season, Briscoe is currently ranked 18th with 443 points, one victory and three top five finishes.
“I felt like balance was definitely more of an issue than the first (Atlanta) race, for sure, with the hotter temperatures,” Briscoe said. “I felt like we got it to where we were pretty decent and I was able to start working the wall a little more than a couple of other guys. I went to pass the 10 and as soon as I did, I guess I just got too high and got to where it was dirty still and killed the right-rear quarterpanel and everything else, so that kind of affected the rest of our day. I’m happy we were able to somewhat salvage a 16th, but I felt like if we didn’t have the damage, it would’ve been a lot better day. We’ll go on to New Hampshire next week and see if we can improve on it.”
The next event on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule is the Ambetter 301 on Sunday, July 17 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. The race begins at 3 p.m. EDT.
