Kvapil restarted in the 11th position and moved up to 9th by the time the caution flag flew again. Crew chief Mike Beam took advantage of the caution to bring the K&N Filters Ford to pit road for tires, fuel and a slight track bar adjustment. Kvapil lined up 10th for the restart at lap 45.

He picked up positions as the race finally settled into a long run. Kvapil made it to the top five for the first time at lap 96. He also was able to stop with the rest of the leaders at lap 131 for tires, fuel and a slight air pressure adjustment. The K&N Filters crew performed flawlessly, getting Kvapil back on track for the lap 134 restart.

Kvapil was caught in lapped traffic and lost ground to the leader but was able to cross the finish line in the third position. “I’m really proud of my K&N Filters crew,” said Kvapil. “We had a good day. We didn’t qualify well, but our Ford F-150 felt really good. It had good balance. This is where we should be and this is what we planned on doing all along. Hopefully, we’ll keep it in the top-10 all year.

Kvapil now stands at sixth place in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point standings. The next race will on June 8th at Texas Motor Speedway.
