2014 Daytona 500: Martin Truex Jr NASCAR Sprint Cup - Engine Problems


MARTIN TRUEX, JR., NO. 78 FURNITURE ROW CHEVROLET SS - Experienced Motor Problems on Lap 31 YOU HAD TWO GREAT CARS HERE IN DAYTONA FOR SPEEDWEEKS. DOES DISAPPOINTING EVEN DESCRIBE WHAT YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW?

"No not really. I mean it’s definitely a tough break for the team. The car was super-fast today and I went to bed last night thinking that this was my best shot ever to win the Daytona 500 and really felt that way - even today. The car was just so good and we were just riding around and biding our time you know, being patient and trying to get to the end of this thing. Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be. It looks like something knocked the oil pump belt off. Not sure if it was debris off the race track or what. You typically get about two seconds to shut it off once that belt comes off or it will blow up and we just didn’t get enough warning.

"Definitely a shame and definitely a tough break for this team. They built us a great race car. I guess the only good news is that we have a car in one piece to race next time because it’s pretty darn good."
