2014 Pocono II: Ford NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Quotes

GREG BIFFLE - No. 16 3M Ford Fusion - YOUR GAMBLE PAID OFF. "Yeah, it did but it was still a tough day. We had a 20th-place car and got track position and drove our butt off. We did everything we could. We had a good strategy there and we might have been able to sneak one out. The 4 was pretty fast, but if that second caution wouldn’t have come out for Kurt, we might have had a prayer to try and steal one, but, overall it was a great day to get the 3M retro paint scheme Ford Fusion up in the top five. We beat the 24 car, which I’m not sure how we did that. They were definitely the fastest car, but we feel good about it. We’ve got to keep working on our car and trying to find the rest of that speed."

MARCOS AMBROSE - No. 9 DeWalt Ford Fusion - "If you had asked me at the start of the day would I take a top-15 finish, I would have said yes but it was just a little frustrating there at the end. We had some issues and I probably let a few spots go, but we’ll keep digging and keep working on it. It’s frustrating for all of us to not be as competitive at these downforce tracks as we want, but we’ve got a good one next week coming up and hopefully we can get rolling there."

DAVID GILLILAND - No. 38 Long John Silver’s Ford Fusion - "I’m very happy and very proud of the guys. Our Long John Silver’s Ford Fusion was pretty good all weekend from the time we unloaded. We knew that we had a good enough car to take advantage of some situations out there on the race track and be able to race hard for lucky dogs and those kind of things. We were able to do that and caught a couple breaks and had a good, solid day."

DAVID RAGAN - No. 34 A&W All-American Food Ford Fusion - "It was as solid top-20 day. I felt like our car was a little better at times, but we just didn’t quite have the track position. It seemed like we were fighting every single restart, but I’m proud of our A&W team. Front Row Motorsports had two cars in the top-20, so that’s a solid day for us."

JOEY LOGANO - No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion - PRESS CONFERENCE - THIS RACE HAD ITS SHARE OF DRAMA TODAY. "Yeah, it sure did. I felt we were on the right strategy and then that caution came out and quite a few cars pitted there, and then they pitted at the same time a few laps later as we did, but they were able to put two tires on or fuel only and gain a lot of track position that way, so we lost quite a bit when that change-up happened. We kind of got jumbled back a little bit and had to work our way back up through the field. That last restart my plan was to push Kevin down into one and hopefully those two would be door-to-door inside of the race track and the seas would part for me, but Dale just went quite a bit earlier than I thought he would and I didn’t have the full momentum behind Kevin. I was almost sleeping a little bit there, so I’m kind of bummed out a little bit about that, but, overall, our Shell/Pennzoil Ford was good. I felt like it was about a third-place car. I felt like the 88 and the 24 were probably the two best and felt like Kevin and I were pretty close to being about the same. Overall, a decent day. The last few weeks we’ve finished where we deserve and not having the issues we had the previous four or five weeks before that, so we’re gaining momentum."

HOW HAVE THE PENSKE CARS STACKED UP VS. THE OTHERS? "We’re in the hunt. I feel like our cars are definitely where they need to be. I feel like when we come to a race track like this, where you’re able to shift, I think our motors are quite a bit better. Our motors run really well at the top end, so when you get them singing like we have here when we downshift into third gear, our corner exits are a little better than maybe what we have at Indy when you have a lower RPM coming off the corner. What we need to work on is bottom end power to become better, and then obviously the constant stuff we always work on with aero and chassis and suspension and the typical stuff everyone is always working on, but I feel like that’s probably our weakest point right now is just some bottom end power. Our top end power is where it needs to be, so we’ll just keep forging forward on that. That’s probably the biggest thing right there."
