Kvapil restarted in eighth position but his F-150 continued to have problems. At lap 191, the K&N Ford went back to pit row for more adjustments. Kvapil restarted in the 15th position with 50 or so laps remaining. He was unable to regain his position and took a 14th place finish.
“We fought tight all day,” said Kvapil. “We pitted that second time because we had nothing to lose. It was a gamble and it didn’t pay off but we had to try something. When we went back out to the track we couldn’t get position. We hoped that we’d be a contender at the end, but we got ourselves in traffic and we couldn’t do anything to get back to the front. We’re disappointed with our finish.”
Kvapil and the No.6 K&N Engineering Team are ninth in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point standing, 216 points out of the lead.
“Travis will be running the K&N Filters No. 6 Truck at Kansas Speedway on April 28,” said Rory Connellan of Roush Racing. “It will be good to be back on a track that is 1 ½ miles. A good run there can move us up a couple of spots. It’s still early enough in the season to turn around. We’re not out of this series by any means.”
