Brian Scott Rallies to an 11th-Place Finish at Dover International Speedway

Brian Scott and the No. 2 Shore Lodge team rallied to an 11th-place finish in the Dover 200 at Dover International Speedway after spinning in the early stages of the Saturday afternoon event. The 25-year-old Richard Childress Racing driver took the green flag from the 10th spot and immediately radioed to crew chief Phil Gould that the handling of his black and white Chevrolet was extremely loose and lacked rear grip. The loose handling condition proved even more challenging as Scott spun off turn two on lap 25, bringing out the afternoon's first caution. Suffering no damage, he brought his Chevrolet Camaro to pit road for wholesale adjustments along with four fresh tires and fuel. Scott restarted in the 21st spot on lap 29. The field slowed once again for a caution period on lap 35. While many competitors visited pit road, Scott stayed out to place him inside the top-10 for the ensuing restart on lap 40. Through the course of the 200-lap affair, the No. 2 Shore Lodge team continued to adjust the handling of the RCR machine and Scott ultimately earned an 11th-place finish, despite becoming one of 35 drivers to fall one lap down to the race leader during a long green flag run in the later stages of the event.

Start - 10 Finish - 11 Laps Led - 0 Points - 7th

"We started the day out really, really loose and just fought it all afternoon. Phil (Gould, crew chief) and the crew made great adjustments all day and we had fast lap times, but with the long runs we were a lap down and didn't get the caution everyone needed to get back on the lead lap. I'm proud of the guys for their hard work all weekend and we're going to end this season very strong."

Austin Dillon Drives No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet to Sixth-Place Finish at Dover International Speedway

Richard Childress Racing's Austin Dillon remains second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series driver championship point standings following a sixth-place finish in the Dover 200 at Dover International Speedway on Saturday afternoon, narrowing his gap in the standings to just four markers with five races remaining. Dillon started the 200-lap race from the sixth position and quickly drove into the top three, despite battling a loose-handling condition on his No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet in the early stages of the race. A caution-flag period on lap 35 provided the Danny Stockman-led team an opportunity to pit for four tires, fuel and adjustments, positioning Dillon in the 16th position when green-flag racing resumed on lap 40. During the ensuing run, Dillon posted some of the quickest lap times of the field. The Welcome, N.C. driver raced into the top 10 within 20 laps and ultimately raced his way into the sixth spot for the race's finish, despite falling one lap down to the race leader on lap 186.

Start - 3 Finish - 6 Laps Led - 0 Points - 2nd

"It was a really interesting race with so many teams on different pit strategies. In order to win this championship, we are going to have to finish ahead of Sam Hornish, Jr. every single weekend for the next five weeks, and that is exactly what we did today. He is a tough competitor, but we will have to prove that we want it more. I am so proud of Danny Stockman and everyone on the No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet team."

Kevin Harvick Collects Top-Five Finish in NASCAR Nationwide Series Race at Dover International Speedway

Kevin Harvick and the No. 33 Steak-EZE Chevrolet team conserved fuel through the final 160-lap green-flag run to the checkered flag and brought home a third-place finish in the 200-mile NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Dover International Speedway. Starting from the eighth position, the two-time Nationwide Series champion battled a loose-handling Chevrolet before coming to pit road under caution on lap 26 for tires, fuel and chassis adjustments. After returning to the race track, the Richard Childress Racing driver communicated to crew chief Ernie Cope that the his black and red machine was still loose and Cope made the decision for Harvick to stay out under caution on lap 37 to gain valuable track position. Restarting third, Harvick maintained a top-five running position for the remainder of the race and saved enough fuel after a green-flag pit stop by the Steak-EZE pit crew on lap 110. He was able to complete the remainder of the 200-lap event without pitting, ultimately crossing the finish line in the third position for the 158th top-five finish of his Nationwide Series career.

Start - 8 Finish - 3 Laps Led - 0 Owner Points - 10th

"All things considered. I'm really happy with our top-five result in the Steak-EZE Chevrolet. We were just really loose throughout the race, but Ernie (Cope, crew chief) made the right call to stay out and gain track position early on and, in the end, the strategy played into our hands with the long green-flag run."

Ty Dillon Earns Fourth-Place Finish in the Desert

Ty Dillon and the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops team earned a fourth-place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after battling track position during the 146-lap affair. During qualifying on Saturdayafternoon, the Richard Childress Racing team posted the fastest time granting them the pole position for the start of the Smith's 350. Dillon led for the first 14 circuits around the 1.5-mile track before a caution flag slowed the field. The No. 3 team opted to pit for right-side tires and fuel during the caution period. He restarted fourth and began working his way back to the front of the field. The Welcome, N.C., native would assume the lead on lap 69. Crew chief Marcus Richmond called the 21-year-old driver to pit road under caution on lap 91 for their last stop of the night for four tires and fuel. As other teams took two tires, Dillon was shuffled back in the field to 14th for the ensuing restart. With laps winding down, Dillon didn't have enough time to get back to the front, resulting in a fourth-place finish for the Bass Pro Shops team.

Start - 1 Finish - 4 Laps Led - 21 Points - 3rd

"This one hurts. We had a really fast Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet this weekend. We started on the pole and had a truck that could have won, but we just couldn't get the track position we needed. I hate it for these guys. They worked really hard. We'll get another win before the season ends."

Gaughan Gambles in Sin City to Finish Eighth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

After starting sixth, gambling with pit strategy and leading 15 laps, Brendan Gaughan and the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino team finished eighth in the Smith's 350 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Las Vegas native maintained a position within the top 10 during the early laps and gambled on pit strategy by staying on track during the first caution period of the night, restarting the race on lap 18 from the point position. Luck was on the side of the Richard Childress Racing team, as the caution flag was displayed on lap 47 just as Gaughan was about to make a scheduled green-flag pit stop. The crew was able to service the No. 62 machine with four tires, add fuel and make a chassis adjustment during the caution period, positioning the gold and black machine fifth for the ensuing restart. As green-flag racing resumed, Gaughan continued to maintain a position within the top 10, while battling a tight-handling Chevrolet, before regaining the lead on lap 75. Following a pit stop on lap 92 under caution for right-side tires and fuel, the RCR driver lined up in the fifth position and remained in the top 10 during the final laps as the handling of his Chevrolet Silverado transitioned from tight to loose, ultimately crossing the finish line eighth. Following the 17th race of the season, Gaughan remains 10th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings.

Start - 6 Finish - 8 Laps Led - 15 Points - 10th

"We had a solid run, but not the finish I was hoping for. The South Point Hotel & Casino crew was on it tonight, we just lost the handling of the truck at the end of the race. It would have been great to win at my home track, but we were able to lead laps and get a top-10 finish. After our run of bad luck lately, the team can be proud of our result tonight."
