SRT Motorsports - Dodge Global Rallycross Final Race Quotes - Las Vegas SEMA
BRYCE MENZIES (No. 99 Red Bull/Discount Tire Dodge Dart) Finished Ninth TALK ABOUT YOUR HEAT RACE: “The start was huge for us. We got on the outside right behind Ken (Block) and just pushed him into Turn 1. I knew that the guys were going to push really hard. I got into second, didn’t decide to take the joker (jump) on the first lap. I should have taken it on the second lap, but we came away with a third-place finish to get the transfer into the Main Event.

“This Dodge Dart is phenomenal. This car is so fast. I’m super happy to finally make it into the Main. These guys have worked so hard on this car that they deserved a shot at winning the Main.

“The crew guys made some great changes to the suspension and the Dart just really took off. Anytime you have to start in the third row, pass all those cars and still make it to the Main says that you have a really fast race car. This Dodge Dart is flying.”

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE FIRST LAP IN TURN 2 DURING THE RACE FINAL? “Just a bummer. We had a great Dodge Dart today. We had a great start to the race. As I was heading towards Turn 2, (Dave) Mirra and (Bucky) Lasek crossed the hood of the car and gave me a flat tire after we made contact. What we didn’t realize at the time was that we broke a front drive shaft. Nothing you could do but pull off the track at that point.

“We caught a break when the red flag came out with a couple laps to go. The crew guys raged on the car to try and get me back out for the race restart. We restarted fifth or so and when I got to the dirt section, the car just spun out. I think we broke the front drive shaft off the car and ended out night. It’s just a tough finish to a really strong and promising night for us.”

A DISAPPOINTING FINISH TO A PROMISING MAIN EVENT FOR THE DODGE DART: “It’s too bad. There were a lot of Dodge folks here and we wanted to put on a good show for them. The Dodge Dart was just awesome all day. That’s racing. It was great to get the opportunity to drive for Travis (Pastrana) and this Red Bull/Discount Tire Dodge Dart team. Hopefully, I can have the opportunity to drive this car again.”

TALK ABOU THE EXPERIENCE THIS YEAR WITH DODGE AND THE DODGE DART IN THE GLOBALRALLY CROSS SERIES? “A really positive year. It was a tough season, a learning season, but looking back on it I think that we have the best car out here with the Dodge Dart. It was awesome to have Bryce Menzies come over and drive for us, to help us get a well-rounded car, a great platform to work with. To win an event (New Hampshire) in the first year is amazing. I’m really excited about the program. I was bummed that I couldn’t be out there and compete today. Bryce did a great job. He progressed all weekend and I think he was probably a top-three car by time the race was over. He got tangled up there in the Main Event. That’s racing. Definitely excited about the year, about the future. The GRC has really grown. The fans were really into the racing tonight. Being here at SEMA was cool and a great platform to show the Dodge Dart off.”
