Harrison Burton understands that a 14th-place finale at Darlington Raceway, the season-high for Wood Brothers Racing, can’t be characterized as reasonable. Still, he’s viewing it as a slight success.
Burton said he did better than the finale; he guessed the velocity they had in that race. There was a portion of that race where they appeared after a trench stop and hadn’t been able to start the race, and then the car woke up.
They formulated the proper modifications on the pit road. Joey and Denny were second and third, and he ran them down and caught them. He guesses Joey had one-lap former tires, so they were beautiful even to them. He snatched them and was like, now they’re rolling.’
“Looking at the lap moment data, that was the toughest race for sure to the leaders and that particular component, and they confirmed the authority’s lap duration. So, it’s like, ‘OK, they’re taking off in the right orientation there.’
They have the speed in eternity to be a top-five car, and they have to go and implement a whole race now. They had one portion where they were reasonable, and then they adapted themselves out of it some. He thought it was a significant accomplishment to run with those guys — catch Denny, catch Joey.”
