2013 Bristol: Ford NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Quotes

2013 Bristol: Ford NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Quotes

JOEY LOGANO - No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion - WHAT HAPPENED? "We had a fast race car, that’s for sure. I was racing for the lead and it’s frustrating. That’s a freaking genius behind the wheel of the 11 car - probably the worst teammate I ever had, so I learned that now. He decided to run in the back of me, so, whatever. I have a scorecard and I’m not putting up with that. What goes around comes around. He already ran down his right-front tire, so he deserves it."

WHAT DID YOU SAY TO DENNY? WILL YOU TELL US? "No, I’ll keep that to myself." DID YOU FEEL LIKE IT WAS PAYBACK FOR HOW HE FELT YOU RACED HIM AT DAYTONA? "I never did anything wrong in Daytona." BUT DO YOU FEEL HE MAY HAVE RETALIATED FROM THAT? "No, I think he’s just driving like an idiot, that’s all." DID YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAD A CAR THAT COULD HAVE WON? "I do. Once we fixed it we were really coming up through the field good, and then I got hit from behind one more time and that knocked the quarterpanel loose and then I got real loose and I couldn’t even stay on the lead lap. It’s frustrating when you’ve got a car that can possibly win it and to get taken out from something like that is just frustrating. This team deserves better. We’ve run better than we’ve finished every week so far. We should have at least four top-10s in my eyes. I feel like we did really good in Daytona. We had a fuel pump issue. We had a fuel pick-up problem at Phoenix, and then we got dumped this week, but the good news we’re fast. I’ve got to be proud of that, but I’m just sick of it." IS BEING EX-TEAMMATES CONTRIBUTING TO THIS? "No, not at all. I had to put up with him for years, so, whatever." DO YOU FEEL YOU AND YOUR TEAM SENT A MESSAGE BY WHAT YOU DID AFTER THE RACE BY GOING OVER THERE TO THE 11? "I’m not gonna get run over and not do something about it. I’m gonna at least talk to him, so I’m done."

ARIC ALMIROLA - No. 43 Smithfield Ford Fusion - "We were having a solid day. Our Smithfield Ford Fusion was decent. We needed it to be better, but it was decent and coming off pit road somebody ran into my left-rear and I guess it cut the tire down. We took off on that restart and I was out of control and crashed. We just had a flat left-rear."

CASEY MEARS - No. 13 Geico Ford Fusion - "We started well and got into an early deal there with the 38 on the frontstretch. We got quite a bit of damage to the car and the guys did a really good job repairing it and we did a good job. We went a lap down and got the lucky dog and came back and passed quite a few guys, so I’m real proud of our guys today. We were definitely competitive and it was fun to race."

RICKY STENHOUSE JR. - No. 17 Best Buy Ford Fusion - "We ended up working our way to the front. On that one run we passed a lot of cars and got into 12th there, and then I got into the wall. I got a little loose on entry - the right-rear got into the wall and that kind of ruined our day. We had to fight back and had to fix damage. The car wasn’t quite as good after that, but, all in all, to start last and finish 16th is not terrible for us." HOW HARD WAS IT TO PASS TODAY? "If you had it free enough, you could do it. We passed quite a few cars on the bottom. The guys on the top had to mess up, you had to really run it, and sometimes it would heat the right-rear up and you’d have to slow down and cool your tires back off and then try it again, so I had a few slide jobs. I had a lot of fun."

BRAD KESELOWSKI - No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion - WHAT HAPPENED ON THE FINAL RESTART? "I got ran over. I’d have to take a look at the replay, but it was gonna be a helluva battle between me and Kasey there with four laps to go, but I didn’t get a chance. I’m not sure what happened, if the 11 car got pushed from behind or if he just ran me over, but that’s racing." YOU BATTLED BACK TO HAVE A GOOD DAY. "Yeah, the 2 team did a great job adjusting on the car during the race. We weren’t close at the start, but at the end the car was pretty good, not quite as good as Kasey’s, but still a great effort."

GREG BIFFLE - No. 16 3M Ford Fusion - "It was really a great day for us because we needed that. At one point we had the fastest car, but we were just a sitting duck because we didn’t take tires, and I put rights on and I was terrible. So I think we learned something. We’ll be back for the fall race." HOW HARD WAS IT TO PASS? "I passed pretty easy up to a point, but I had a lot of fun today. I went from 28th to fifth and passed every car by myself, so it was a pretty good day."

CARL EDWARDS - No. 99 Kellogg’s Ford Fusion - "I have to thank the infield medical folks and the folks with NASCAR medical. They really helped me out a lot today. That’s the most miserable race I’ve ever been through, but there was a little bit of satisfaction to come back and finish 18th."

DAVID RAGAN - No. 34 Dockside Logistics Ford Fusion - "Considering that we had to start from the back, not a bad finish for us. We had a fuel issue early on and we got that figured out. Our Dockside Logistics team did a nice job on pit road. We pitted a lot and worked on it a lot, we had a good strategy and Jay (Guy) called a good race. It was a hard race. We had a solid car and we just needed to qualify a little better and start in a better position. We were down from the beginning but the whole team worked hard to overcome it."

DAVID GILLILAND - No. 38 A&W All-American Ford Fusion - "A top-25 isn't a bad result after what happened, but obviously we're a little frustrated because we had potential for a lot better finish. Our A&W Ford was fast. Frank (Kerr) and the guys brought a fast car to the track. We showed that in practice and qualifying and at the beginning of the race. But we blew a right front and hit the wall, and at a track like Bristol, it's hard to come back from that. But we didn't give up, we kept battling and still got our best finish of the year so far."
