Kvapil raced inside the top 30 all day and even led a lap before crossing the finish line in the 26th position
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (October 7, 2013) - Travis Kvapil and the No. 93 Burger King / Dr. Pepper Toyota Camry team finished 26th at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, October 6. Kvapil raced inside the top 30 all day and even led a lap before crossing the finish line in the 26th position.
Track position proved to be key throughout the day. Kvapil moved into the top 20 several times, only to be shuffled out on a few restarts and to spin in turn two following a restart on lap 147. Falling outside the top 30 following the spin, Kvapil regained his rhythm on the track to cross the finish line in the 26th position.
"We had a good race car today with the No. 93 Burger King / Dr. Pepper Toyota Camry," commented Kvapil. "Going into the race this afternoon, we didn't know exactly what to expect with tire wear, so we were a bit conservative during the opening laps of the race. Once we realized that our tire wear would be okay, we were able to race harder and pick up positions. Our car was a little loose entering turn one, but we were really strong in turns three and four. We didn't have quite the track position we hoped for at the end of the race, but I'm still proud of our 26th-place finish. We're looking forward to getting back on the track next weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway."
