Brian Scott Finishes 11th in Rain Shortened Race at Phoenix International Raceway
Start - 2nd Finish - 11th Laps Led - 0 Points - 8th
"Your car just develops a lot of issues when you get behind a couple of people racing. You just develop issues and start to fight tight and loose conditions. In clean air, my Whitetail Chevrolet was a little snug but in dirty air I was loose in, plowing tight. It was really hard to pinpoint what adjustments you need to make."
Ty Dillon Finishes 10th in rain-shortened race at Phoenix International Raceway
Ty Dillon drove Richard Childress Racing's No. 3 WESCO Chevrolet Camaro to a 10th-place finish Saturday afternoon in a rain-shortened race at Phoenix International Raceway. The No. 3 team made a four-tire, fuel and track bar adjustment pit stop on lap 83, followed by a two-tire and fuel pit stop on lap 136, keeping the No. 3 team in the top 10 for most of the day. Dillon made a move on lap 157 to crack the top-10 before a caution and red flag on lap 168. After nearly a two-hour rain delay, NASCAR officials called off the remainder of the race giving the No. 3 WESCO Chevrolet its second top-10 finish of the season. Dillon finished second of the seven rookies eligible for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award and currently sits fourth in the driver point standings.
Start - 5th Finish - 10th Laps Led - 0 Points - 4th
TY DILLON QUOTE:
"Our guys did an unbelievable job today giving me the fastest race car possible. We made a few adjustments on pit road that really helped our No. 3 WESCO Chevrolet. I really wanted to get back out on the track after NASCAR red flagged the race on lap 168 - I felt we could have picked up a few more spots with the speed we were gaining."
Brendan Gaughan Leaves Phoenix International Raceway with a 16th-Place Finish

BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
"The No. 62 team and I really wanted to go back green here at Phoenix International Raceway, but the rain had different plans. We were ready to throw the kitchen sink at it and get back out there. We were hoping to watch the leaders beat and bang, so we could come out of today with a top-10 finish. We don't always get what we want. I'm excited and look forward to my home track next week in Las Vegas."
