Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran in the top five for the first half of Sunday’s race, but eventually finished a lap down in 12th.
“We just chased the handling of the car the entire day,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “It’s frustrating. Just a thousandths of an inch adjustment can mess things up."
Crew chief Tony Eury Jr. agreed that it was a challenging day.
“We were way too loose ... so we did a couple of adjustments to fix that,” Eury Jr. said.
“It made things better, but it just kept getting tighter in the center. Then we made a pretty huge adjustment and it kind of backfired on us. ... Right at the very end we did something and it really helped a ton, but it was too late then.
"We can always put that into our files and we know what to do next time.”
