2014 Pocono II: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Accident Quotes


JIMMIE JOHNSON, NO. 48 LOWE’S CHEVROLET SS - EXPERIENCED A TIRE FAILURE ON LAP 113 WHICH RESULTED IN HEAVY RIGHT SIDE DAMAGE

YOU AND CHAD WERE JUST EXAMINING THE CAR, WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED?

"The first one, I got tight off turn one and got in the fence. It pushed the rear quarter panel into the tire and got the first flat, so my bad. There on that one, I am clueless. It didn’t act like a tire went down and I am not exactly sure if it did. Normally when they go down that quick they explode and there was no explosion, the tire did not come apart, it just went straight. We are trying to get in there and look at it, obviously the tire is flat now from the impact. Hopefully we can get a reason why. Unfortunate with how hard we fought to get ourselves back in contention and I was really proud of this Lowe’s team. It wasn’t the best weekend but we still gave ourselves a chance at a win if not a top five today and came up a little short."

WHAT HAPPENED? "I’m not really sure. The car went straight down into the Tunnel Turn. Unfortunate, we had some trouble early and were able to really rally back and get ourselves in the top five. So disappointed for sure, but really unclear as to what happened going into Turn 2. The car went straight so at this point the guys are trying to get the right-front (tire) off to take a look at it as you hear the hammers behind me."

PAUL MENARD, NO. 27 CERTAINTEED/MENARDS CHEVROLET SS - INVOLVED IN A MULTI-CAR ACCIDENT ON LAP 118

WHAT WAS YOUR TAKEAWAY FROM WHAT JUST TRANSPIRED?

"I don’t know I haven’t seen the replay. All I know is the No.11 got loose on the outside, maybe two rows in from of me. Next thing I know the No. 55 got turned in front of me and there was nowhere to go. There was about 14 different strategies going on out there and I thought we had one that I thought was going to be okay and come away with a top ten. Our CertainTeed Menards Chevy SS was pretty good all day and like I said just kind of going through different sequences and stuff, but yeah, just nowhere to go."

TONY STEWART’S CAR ENDED UP ON TOP OF YOUR CAR: "I told Tony (Stewart) the last time we did that was about two years ago at Talladega. So we have got to stop doing that. We had a really good Menards/CertainTeed Chevy. There were a lot of different pit strategies going on and the one that we had was going to work out okay for us, maybe come away with a top 10. The car was good, just that stuff happens I guess."

TONY STEWART, NO. 14 CODE 3 ASSOCIATES/MOBIL 1 CHEVROLET SS - INVOLVED IN A MULTI-CAR ACCIDENT ON LAP 118

YOU HAD THE WILDEST RIDE OF ANYONE OUT THERE, WHAT HAPPENED?

"I don’t know. It started far enough ahead of us that we couldn’t see it. We were just coming off of two there and somebody got sideways and started wrecking in front of us and we got caught up in it. I ended up on top of Paul Menard’s hood so it wasn’t where we wanted to end up by any means."

CONSIDERING WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOUR LEG LAST YEAR, ARE YOU OKAY?

"Yeah, nothing there. Our guys do a really good job of making sure it’s nice and comfortable in there and from having any problems."

WHAT DID YOU SEE? "It was far enough ahead of us we never even saw how it started. It was on the exit of the corner everybody was going out to the wall because that is the way the car wants to head. Just when it started we couldn’t do anything."

YOU ENDED UP ON TOP OF PAUL MENARD’S CAR? "Yeah, I tend to end up on Paul (Menard) a lot. Car wise (laughs) our cars tend to end up on top of each other for some reason. I think that is the second time I’ve landed on top of him. This time at least we weren’t looking windshield in at each other."
