After the race Devin reported, “We were about 2 1/2 to 3 tenths off.  With the short amount of time we had between practice and the feature, we made an adjustment and hoped it squared the rear end.  That was obviously the trick to do it.  We got out for the feature and the car was absolutely perfect.”

Earlier in the week, Devin competed in round 7 of the Bojangles Summer Shootout Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Devin qualified fourth and battled his way to 2nd bt lap 10. The next 15 laps would see the lead change 5 times between Devin and Stevie Johns with Devin falling short at he checker flag settling for 2nd place.
