2014 Daytona 24: Chevrolet Post-Race Quotes


JOAO BARBOSA, NO. 5 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP-SECOND ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA OVERALL VICTORY

TALK ABOUT THE LAST STINT. YOU MUST NOT HAVE WANTED TO SEE THAT FINAL YELLOW.

"I didn’t want to see it. I had quite a good gap and cushion so I could manage traffic. I was getting quite worried initially because I kept hitting traffic at the wrong moments. When the yellow came, I was struggling with the car. The gears weren’t as smooth as I would have liked it. They were sticking a little bit. But what a race. Action Express first and third; Corvette, one-two-three. These Action Express guys are the best. And my teammates…what a phenomenal job. We had a little hiccup during the night but we still had plenty of time to come back and that’s what we did. We kept fighting to the end."

CHRISTIAN FITTIPALDI, NO. 5 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP- SECOND ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA VICTORY

"I have no words. It is really exciting. The last couple of laps couldn’t have been more exciting. We weren’t expecting that yellow but unfortunately it happened. Joao seemed to have it under control. Max (Angelelli in the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP) is an awesome driver and he is always a friend. The Chevy power was awesome. The combination of Joao, Sebastian (Bourdais) and myself… I guess it works!"

SEBASTIAN BOURDAIS, NO. 5 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP- FIRST ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA VICTORY

"This is as big as it gets. It’s one of those historic races you want on your resume, and it’s done today. It was done fighting hard for it. It really feels good for Team Chevy and everyone involved because we went and grabbed this one.

HOW WAS YOUR HEART RATE ON THE FINAL FEW LAPS ON THE RESTART?

You can’t help yourself but to think what could go wrong from here. But it is such a relief when the checkered flag comes out."

WAYNE TAYLOR, NO. 10 WAYNE TAYLOR RACING CORVETTE DP:

TALK ABOUT YOUR RACE AND SECOND PLACE FINISH

"It wasn't what we wanted; we wanted to win the first one for Corvette. Hats off to those guys. They won the race fair and square. I am so happy for Mark Reuss, General Motors Executive VP Global Product Development; Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports; and Mark Kent, Director of Chevrolet Racing. They've supported us for so long, and they deserve this more than anybody else. Now they have a one-two-three (finish) I think that is fantastic. I am just so proud to be associated with them."

A HISTORIC RACE FOR YOU TO RACE WITH YOUR SONS (Jordan Taylor and Ricky Taylor): "Yes it was. It was an amazing experience. They were just superstars. I'm proud of them and Max (Angelelli) and my team. All the partners we have. Team Chevy."

JORDAN TAYLOR, NO. 10 WAYNE TAYLOR RACING CORVETTE DP:

ON THE FINISH:

"Not that happy to be honest. It is two years in a row that we haven't been in the garage or had an issue with the car, and finished second both years. So, it is frustrating. But at the end of the day. It's good for points, good for the championship and a great day for Corvette, so I can't complain."

RICKY TAYLOR, NO. 10 WAYNE TAYLOR RACING CORVETTE DP:

ON THE RACE FINISH:

"It's disappointing. I never thought I would say that for finishing second at the 24 Hours. We had a really good car. It was nice when you know that the Corvette is the car to beat and you are lucky enough to drive one. It was really cool to have an opportunity to win. That is just more reason to be disappointed. We had such a good car. Corvette was the car to have so that is kind of disappointing, but a good points day."

MAX ANGELELLI, NO. 10 WAYNE TAYLOR RACING CORVETTE DP:

ON HIS CHARGE FOR THROUGH THE FIELD TO CHALLENGE FOR THE WIN:

"I thought I could really get him. When I got in the car, and I was chasing him, I thought 'Okay, all I need is a yellow'. Like last year, all of a sudden those people find speed. But it is a great day for Chevy...one-two-three."

BURT FRISSELLE, NO. 9 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP:

TALK ABOUT THE GREAT PODIUM FINISH:

"For the team, and especially for the Delta Racing guys - this is their first event. You can't be happier than to be on the podium with the Corvette to make the whole podium Corvettes here in Daytona for the Rolex 24. That is pretty, pretty special. For Action Express to take the top step and the third step on the podium, it's amazing. I am so proud just to do my part. Brian (Frisselle) drove brilliantly. John (Martin) drove brilliant. Fabien (Giroix) did a nice job early in the race having to deal with the red flag and the yellow. Our thoughts and prayers to go out to Memo (Gidley) who was also driving a Corvette. It is just a very exciting day for Action Express, for Delta Motorsports and for the Frisselle Brothers to be on the podium together here at Daytona."

JOHN MARTIN, NO. 9 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP:

TALK ABOUT THE FINISH FOR THE TEAM:

"It was obviously my first time here at Daytona; first time driving the Corvette Daytona Prototypes. I am absolutely privileged to be here and to drive with these guys as well who have obviously been here a few times. To finish third as well is amazing. The Corvette held strong all day, all night and all the next day. It is good. I would like to thank Delta Motorsports, Action Express for having us here and Millennium for making it happen."

BRIAN FRISSELLE, NO. 9 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP:

TALK ABOUT THE FINISH:

"Props to Chevy. They took the top-three in this - the toughest endurance race in the world. Huge props to them. The motor ran great. We had a few little issues with our car, but overall, just a great event. I have to thank Action Express, Delta Motorsports, Chevy and Millennium for making it all happen."

FABIEN GIROIX, NO. 9 ACTION EXPRESS RACING CORVETTE DP:

TALK ABOUT YOUR RACE: "We came here and the car was fantastic. No big issues. For me to come for the first time to Daytona, it was very exciting. Right team, right car, right everything."
