2014 Iowa: Chevrolet IndyCar Race Quotes


TONY KANAAN, NO. 10 TNT ENERGY DRINK CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET - FINISHED 3RD

ON HIS NIGHT: "It’s one of those things. They took a gamble. It’s such a shame because we dominated the race. I had a lot of fun, but what can I do? It seems like we have been knocking on the door. To win races you have run up front. That is what we been doing. Take the third place and go to Toronto. I can’t thank Firestone for the great tires, Chevy and Target and TNT for the great support. I hope the fans like the race. Probably we led too much so it was a little bit boring, but man we can’t get it right. We will get it."

SCOTT DIXON, NO. 9 TARGET CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET - FINISHED 4TH

HOW DO YOU COME AWAY FROM A RACE LIKE THIS WHERE YOU AND YOUR TEAMMATE TONY KANAAN DOMINATED? "Sneaky little buggers they are. I couldn’t believe it. Good strategy and credit obviously to Andretti and (Ryan) Hunter-Reay taking the win there. Our Chevy Target cars were fantastic tonight. I just couldn’t believe TK (Tony Kanaan) ran a hell of a race. He must have led God 250 laps or something. We had to work on our car a lot. We just gave them a race there for a little while, led some laps, but I burnt the front tires off my car. Credit to the team, but we just came short there by a couple of spots. Hopefully we will come back at Toronto and get some victories."

ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 FUZZY’S VODKA/ED CARPENTER RACING CHEVROLET - FINISHED 5TH:

"Our Fuzzy’s car had understeer all race and we were just hanging on at the end of the race. We had to pit for tires late and that got us from 14th to 5th in the last nine laps. Ryan (Hunter-Reay) and Josef (Newgarden) and others pitted at the right time for tires. We didn’t get that just right at the end. But I’m happy with fifth tonight. Our crew was spectacular on the pit stops too. I would like to apologize to Juan Pablo (Montoya for the lap 280 incident). I’m sorry that he crashed but I didn’t do it on purpose. I was hanging on with my tires and I didn’t know that he was there. I never saw him up next to me. And we didn’t bump. By the time my spotter (Lee Bentham) mentioned left corner to me, I went low to avoid pushing up towards the wall. I’m sorry that happened. I’ll plan to talk to him about it too."

HELIO CASTRONEVES, NO. 3 HITACHI TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET - FINISHED 8TH:

"The Hitachi Chevy was awesome today. I’m really proud of the team. To be honest, from the first practice session to the race we changed a lot on this car and it was great. We were running in the top three most of the day. Obviously, finishing in the eighth position, isn’t where we deserved to finish. But it was a gamble there at the end. We are leaving here with the championship lead and that is what we need to focus on moving forward."

RYAN BRISCOE, NO. 8 NTT DATA CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET - FINISHED 9TH: "It’s always good to get a top-10 finish, but it’s just disappointing that we fell from our starting spot of fourth down to ninth at the finish. The No. 8 NTT DATA Chevrolet felt really good throughout the race, but just there at the end we couldn’t hold on after such a long stint. Like I said, a top-10 finish is great but I want to win."

CHARLIE KIMBALL, NO. 83 LEVEMIR FLEXTOUCH CHEVROLET - FINISHED 11TH: "It was a long day for the No. 83 Levemir® FlexTouch® Chevrolet, but I’ll definitely take a top-10 finish. I have to give a lot of credit to the crew - they were just awesome in pit lane. The stops were right and the strategy was right and we were really fast in clean air. Once the field got strung out, I was running fast lap times but I need to figure out how to run in traffic before I really master short-track racing. I feel really good with that finish and now we just need to put our heads down and get ready for Toronto."

WILL POWER, NO. 12 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET - FINISHED 14TH: "I'm proud of the Verizon Chevy boys. It was a tough call at the end there. Had we went with the new tires we might have been looking pretty good. But a tough day to work hard with the Verizon Chevy doing so well, and then to finish fourteenth just wasn't where we expected to be tonight. We'll move forward and look ahead to Toronto."

SEBASTIAN SAAVEDRA, NO. 17 AUTOMATIC FIRE SPRINKLERS KV AFS CHEVROLET - FINISHED 17TH: "Very hard to describe how disappointed I am. This was our day, we had a car that I connected very well with. We were very loose from the beginning but I loved it and I was driving where I needed to drive it. Unfortunately at the end of the third stint, everyone was struggling with grip and my rear tires were extremely worn and I just couldn’t save this "moment" and it ended our day. Tonights result doesn’t show how good a car we had. I want to apologize to everyone who believed in me today, we had this race and I take full responsibility. We have shown that we can do and that we belong at the front, so we will keep digging and head to Toronto next weekend."

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 2 PPG TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET - SIDELINED IN A ON-TRACK ACCIDENT ON LAP 280 - FINISHED 16TH

"Our PPG Chevy was really good today. We had some issues during the weekend but we never gave up. Yesterday in qualifying got really loose and we came back today really strong, passing people. I got inside of him (Ed Carpenter) and he was running high and then all of a sudden decided to run low. He had been running every lap on the top. I got a run I got inside of him and he just turned down on me. Very frustrating deal but we have to move on. We’re still in good shape."

SEBASTIEN BOURDAIS, NO. 11 MISTIC KVSH RACING CHEVROLET - SIDELINED WITH ELECTRICAL ISSUES ON LAP 130 - FINISHED 19TH

"It’s just a shame. We were having a strong night. At the start we had some problems and lost some places, but we had a lot of racing to go. When the car came back to us I started to work my way back through the field, passed some cars and was pretty optimistic. Then we started having an electrical problem that eventually shut down the entire car for a good five, six seconds. The second time it happened I just ducked into pit lane because you just can’t take the chance to run under those conditions. It’s a tough break for the Mistic E-Cig crew because the car was definitely very competitive and we could have had a very good night. We have had good cars so far this season, we just have to keep working hard and things will turn around for the KVSH Racing team."
