Truex Finishes 36th In New Hampshire

Ryan Truex and the No. 83 Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry team finished 36th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon. After fighting the handling on his car throughout the early stages of the event, Truex was able to keep his car clean while he avoided any trouble on the track to drive to a 36th place finish.

Truex, a Sunoco Rookie contender, rolled off 38th for his first start at the one-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway. After fighting the handling of his car throughout the majority of practice, the race wasn't much different as Truex developed an extreme tight condition as he returned to the gas while exiting the corners. The condition was so extreme that it even caused the front tires to chatter.

In a relatively clean race, Truex utilized each opportunity he had to visit pit road for adjustments to his car. With a variety of chassis and air pressure adjustments, the handling of the Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry improved, but the car never handled fully to Truex' liking. By the time the checkered flag waved, Truex was scored in the 36th position.

"We had a challenging race with our Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry this afternoon, but I feel as though we learned quite a bit and I'm happy with all the hard work my guys put into the car," commented Truex. "With the flat track surface here, there aren't a lot of tracks like New Hampshire, so I was expecting a tough race. This year, we've just been focused on getting better every week, and I feel like we achieved that goal this weekend simply by building up our notebook. We come back to New Hampshire in September, and I believe we'll be in a better position entering that race weekend after our run here today."

Following a rare-off weekend as their summer break, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will visit the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway as Crown Royal Presents the John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard on Sunday, July 27. FOX Sports 1 will kick off the weekend with live coverage of practice at 11:30 a.m. EDT on Friday, July 25. On Saturday, July 26, ESPN will provide coverage of practice (9 a.m. EDT) and qualifying (2 p.m. EDT) from the historic two-mile track. Live coverage of the race traditionally identified simply as "the Brickyard 400" will be provided by ESPN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and IMS Radio Network at 1 p.m. EDT on Sunday afternoon.
