Shane van Gisbergen

No. 16 WeatherTech Camaro ZL1


• Shane van Gisbergen qualified 12th for the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix.

• Struggling with rear grip to start the first stage, van Gisbergen slipped to 13th by lap five. His WeatherTech Chevrolet began coming to him as the first stage progressed, and he made it up to 11th when the 16 team made its first green-flag pit stop of the day on lap 12. Following a four tire stop, van Gisbergen ended the opening stage in 20th.

• Van Gisbergen stayed out during the first stage break and started the second stage from 13th. Following the changes made to his WeatherTech Chevrolet, van Gisbergen cracked the top 10 on lap 23. He made another scheduled green-flag pit stop on lap 25 from the 10th position. After receiving a speeding penalty during his stop, van Gisbergen was issued a pass-through penalty and was scored 31st at the end of stage two.

• Staying out once again under the stage two break, van Gisbergen cycled to 19th for the start of stage three on lap 33. After making it up to 13th on lap 40, van Gisbergen reported an issue with first gear. He made it up to second, stretching the fuel run until lap 50, when he made his final pit stop for four tires, fuel and adjustments. Following the stop, van Gisbergen rejoined the field in 21st where he finished the race.

“Tough day for our WeatherTech team. We battled some issues all day and could just never overcome everything. I appreciate all the hard work from everyone at Kaulig and Trackhouse. We will try again at Talladega in a few weeks.”

- Shane van Gisbergen
