NASCAR went night racing for the second time of 2019 when the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series visited Kansas Speedway this weekend . The GEICO Racing team only had two practice sessions on Friday afternoon to prepare their Camaro ZL1 for Saturday night's Digital Ally 400. At the checkers, Ty Dillon finished in the 28th position.
“This just wasn’t our day," said Dillon. "We decided to run a setup similar to our Texas car that ran well back in March after practice didn’t go how we wanted it to. Our GEICO Camaro ZL1 qualified well with it, but we weren’t quite sure what it would do during the race because all of the intermediate tracks are just so different from each other. It started off a little loose, but my team made great adjustments when they had the opportunity and I was really happy with my car by the end of Stage 2. I wish we could have gotten a better finish, but we will take this as a learning night and be ready to come back in the fall.”
Dillon will next compete in the All-Star Open in hopes of transferring into NASCAR's All-Star Race. The All-Star Open will be run on Saturday, May 18th, and it will be televised live on FS1 beginning at 6 PM (ET), followed immediately by the All-Star Race. The Performance Racing Network (PRN) will carry the live radio broadcast, along with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
