NASCAR America: Slugger Labbe’s biggest regret is not taking Austin Dillon to victory lane

Slugger Labbe, former crew chief of Austin Dillon, says he was "overcome with joy" after Dillon's first win in the Coca-Cola 600, but his biggest regret was not being able to take the No. 3 car to victory lane.

Just six days after he chose to part ways with Richard Childress Racing, Slugger Labbe watched as the driver he had been crew chief for, Austin Dillon, won the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Labbe joined NASCAR America on Thursday’s edition and said he was “overcome with joy” after Dillon’s first career NASCAR Cup win.

But Dillon’s win was bittersweet for Labbe, who said his biggest regret of working with Dillon was never being able to take the No. 3 car to victory lane.

Check out the above video to hear Labbe’s thoughts about what was a very special win.
