Back-to-Back Top Fives

“We didn't have a great practice session to start the weekend, but we were able to qualify well and get ourselves a good starting position. Everyone at Kaulig Racing put their heads together to bring a different package this weekend, and I was surprised by the speed we had in stage one. It validated the direction we were going in. The stack up on the restart in stage two happened, and I could tell we got quite a bit more damage than we thought, because the car never felt the same after that restart. I lost speed after that. After strategy and making the most of a couple restarts, we got another top five for our Chevy Accessories Camaro.” - Daniel
