Like many others who visit the city of Las Vegas, Jeff Burton and the Caterpillar race team found themselves at a loss and looking for more as they said goodbye to Sin City. After starting the Kobalt Tools 400 from the 21st position, handling issues plagued the No. 31 black and yellow Chevrolet Impala throughout the 267-lap event. The Todd Berrier-led crew used each pit stop throughout the day to apply every adjustment in their arsenal to the Caterpillar Chevrolet but to no avail, forcing Burton & Co. to settle for a disappointing 21st-place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

JEFF BURTON QUOTE:

"We are really disappointed with our finish. Everyone on the Caterpillar Chevrolet team works hard and this finish is not a reflection of our effort, but we certainly have to figure out what we were missing today. We'll put this behind us and look forward to getting to Bristol in a few weeks."
