2014 Daytona II (Coke Zero 400): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race - Lap 98 Accident Quotes


JAMIE MCMURRAY, NO. 1 CESSNA CHEVROLET SS - Involved in multi-car crash on lap 98

AT TIMES TODAY, YOU HAD THE BEST CAR. WHAT CAUSED ALL THAT?

"I don’t know. I knew I was going to walk out here and you guys were going to ask me what happened, but from my seat I didn’t see anything. Kasey (Kahne) came over and said that maybe Greg (Biffle) bumped him a couple times and got him squirrelly and he said he couldn’t catch it. When you have a car spin out at the front of the field, there is just nowhere to go. I ran into the guy who was directly in front of me and the guy behind me clobbered me.

"I will tell you I have never had a car that’s off the ground and it’s a crazy feeling, and it’s a helpless feeling to have the car do that. I was really lucky that it set back down. You see these big wrecks and those are probably the easiest hits you take all year long because everyone is going the same speed and for the most part, those don’t hurt near as bad as if you have a tire issue or something."

YOU SAID YOU WERE SURPRISED AT THE SWING OF THE HANDLING OF THE CAR FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE RUN TO THE END

"It wasn’t necessarily run to run, but at the beginning of the race I could tell our car drove better and I could tell a lot of guys were having to lift. And I wasn’t. Our car was really stable and right at the end of the green flag pit stop run I got a little bit tight and I just assumed that when we put tires on that it would feel fine. But from the very first lap it was tight. I don’t know if it was a tight set of tires or if the track was just changing that much."

FROM YOUR SEAT WHAT HAPPENED? 
"I didn’t see anything. I really didn’t even get to see a replay in the infield care center. They had a wreck in front of us and you are kind of along for the ride after that. I was more concerned when I got out about Kyle (Busch). I wasn’t sure why he wasn’t getting out with his car being upside down on the track. It’s kind of scary I think my car got airborne. I have never had that happen before it’s a helpless feeling when you are getting hit as you are in the air. It was kind of scary, but glad it looks like everyone is okay."

KASEY KAHNE, NO. 5 FARMERS INSURANCE CHEVROLET SS - Involved in multi-car crash on lap 98

WHAT STARTED IT FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE?

"Yeah, I felt like I was about sixth or so and I was getting hit from behind and I just started spinning. It’s kind of a tough spot to be in there because everybody is trying to get going and I just got hit, started going left to right and spun around. I knew it was going to be big as far up as I was."

WAS IT A MATTER OF THESE GUYS BEING TOO AGGRESSIVE OR THESE CARS BEING HARD TO HANDLE LATE IN A RUN?

"No, the cars are hard to handle when they get pushed and are close together like that. If you are getting hit in the corners of your bumper. And that is what I felt like was that the corners got hit a couple times and it went left and right and started spinning. I am not sure exactly how it all happened. We avoided the first wreck, and we didn’t avoid the second one so, it’s too bad.

JUSTIN ALLGAIER, NO. 51 ACCUDOC SOLUTIONS CHEVROLET SS - INVOLVED IN A MULTI-CAR CRASH ON LAP 98

WHAT HAPPENED? 
"Unfortunately I’m probably the same as most of the guys that were back there with me. I didn’t really see a whole lot as to what started it. I saw a white car I think get turned up in the front and it’s just so hard here. You are running so fast and you are trying to stop right now. I thought we had it missed. I was following along with Denny Hamlin there. I thought we had it missed and whoever was behind me started to spin and got into the back of us.

"I don’t know; then it was a pile on from there. Hit the grass, tore the splitter up, not going to be the finish we wanted for our Accudoc Solutions Chevy for sure. We had a strong car and I think we can get it fixed. We have to put a radiator in it and do a couple of other things, but hopefully go out there and gain some of those valuable points."

REED SORENSON, NO. 36 GOLDEN CORRAL CHEVROLET SS - INVOLVED IN A MULTI-CAR CRASH ON LAP 98

ON WHAT HAPPENED: 


"I saw absolutely nothing. I just saw a car maybe two or three rows in front of me start spinning and then I think I got hit from behind. It was on from there. I couldn’t see anything. It just tore the car up. It looks like there are a lot (of cars) in here in the garage so it looks like it tore a bunch of. I will just have to look at the replay, but that is part of racing here. It is bound to happen."

LANDON CASSILL, NO. 40 NEWTON BUILDING SUPPLIES CHEVROLET SS - INVOLVED IN A MULTI-CAR CRASH ON LAP 98

WHAT HAPPENED FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE? 


"I’m really proud of my team they built a really nice car, ECR engines, we go all out for these races and we have had the results to prove it. I’m really proud that we led some laps today, but there was nothing I could do at that point."
