"But, man, this is awesome", Larson continued. The four turns are all banked at the same 24 degrees from the apron to the outer wall while the front and back straights aren't banked hardly at all. "I'm excited about that".
PIT PROBLEMS: Harvick said the race was a letdown since he had the fastest auto and failed to win.
Asked how he would describe the night, Harvick said: "A letdown". "That's how you take the fastest auto and don't win the race with it".
'NASCAR's plan is to do just that, watch them next week, ' he said. "But we think we kind of understand what went on out there, and I think they're in a pretty good place".
Advancing into the All-Star race was definitely a challenge for Larson since William Byron won the Open's first stage and Bubba Wallace claimed the second.
"I'm not sure what else y'all would want!" exclaimed Bubba Wallace, after taking a moment to look over his badly damaged Chevy that he had somehow steered to fifth. "I don't know what the hell his beef was", Clint Bowyer said after the race.More news: Samsung Galaxy S11 Codenamed Revealed

Clint Bowyer summoned the ghost of Deontay Wilder immediately following Saturday night's All-Star race. "I think he should be embarrassed by himself". Then after the race, I just tapped him in the back, let him know I didn't appreciate the way he raced me.
"Doesn't take much of a man to try to fight somebody with a helmet on". Drivers who have won a NASCAR Cup Series race in the past year, won a previous All-Star race or who had won a Cup championship are automatically qualified.
Newman's team got between Bowyer and Newman. "I thought that was it", Wallace admitted. I checked up, and he ran into my left rear.
Bowyer's response: "Hell, I thought he was a lap down. after the race, he runs into my back and turns me all around. I pull up next to him and he dumps me into four". "You've just got to be prepared and they just weren't prepared tonight". He won the Monster Energy Open qualifying race to put him in the 19-car field for the All-Star race. Chip Ganassi Racing's Larson passed Ty Dillon for the lead on Lap 5 of the final 10-lap stage and held on for the win. Alongside will be 2017 All-Star victor Kyle Busch, who got his time at Charlotte started strongly with a win in the truck series on Friday night. But things came down to a green-white-checkered finish where Byron's No. 24 vehicle moved from fourth to the front and prevailed over Wallace by a few feet. For two laps, Wallace held off the Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Daniel Suarez, who had new Goodyears, and when Suarez darted to the inside off the final corner, Wallace blocked, sending Suarez sliding through the infield and out of contention.
A hard start to the season, combined with financial woes at Richard Petty Motorsports, left Wallace doubting himself and his ability. "I've had a lot of bad luck", Larson said. "We'll see what we can get tonight". Its third-place finish earlier this month at Dover was its first top 10 since March at Phoenix.
