2014 Fontana (California): Jimmie Johnson NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Qualifying Press Conference

2014 Fontana (California): Jimmie Johnson NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Qualifying Press Conference


TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR QUALIFYING RUN: "Real consistent session for us. We did a nice job managing things and managing the balance of the race car. I felt like I got all that my car had on that last session, just came up a little bit short. I knew (turns) one and two was the best that I could get out of it. I just knew I was a little too tight, but (turns) three and four, man, I was flying over there. I just wish that up through (turns) one and two it was a touch better. The thing I am honestly most excited about is to start this good starting the weekend. I feel like Vegas, Phoenix, even Bristol we were really working hard to catch up and to be a factor and to have speed. We have unloaded with speed. That is good for us. We are kind of in familiar territory right now and back where we want to be starting a race weekend."

WERE YOU SURPRISED THAT PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO GO OUT AND PICK UP SPEED AT TIMES? "Shocked. I think the cooling track conditions helped and certainly the shade in (turns) three and four. From watching the little fan scan thing the guys ran a higher line and got into the shade and found some speed and got back around. That was really cool to see. I think the No. 88 and the No. 99 went faster."

WE’VE NOW GOT THIS QUALIFYING FORMAT IN FOUR RACES. HOW DO YOU LIKE IT? "I think it’s awesome. I really do. This track has a high wear factor for the tires and I was concerned that if you had a bad lap you couldn’t go out and improve, but to see a couple of cars do that in the first session was nice. I think there is an argument maybe for a second set of tires to come into play. But for an abrasive race track I think this was a very competitive knockout qualifying session."
