2014 Watkins Glen: Ryan Newman NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Quotes - Accident


RICK HENDRICK, TEAM OWNER, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS -

IS THERE A CONNECTION PROBLEM?

"Yeah, we can't find it. The car just lost power. Everything is dead. We put the batteries in it, but it's lost power. It's some connection somewhere; we just don't know where it is."

RYAN NEWMAN, NO. 31 CATERPILLAR CHEVROLET SS - INVOLVED IN A MULTI-CAR ACCIDENT ON LAP 57 WHAT HAPPENED? ARE YOU OKAY?

"I’m okay. It’s just the wrong place at the wrong time. From my standpoint, (Greg) Biffle jumped the curb and hit the splitter or something up on the curb and got out and got across the grass. And I probably could have given him a little bit more, but I tried to time it so I could shoot past but he slowed down when he got back on the race track. It’s really disappointing. We lost John Melvin here in the last couple of weeks and he did a lot of innovations for our sport and it’s really sad that they haven’t adapted any of them here at this race track. The Safer barrier doesn’t exist here, there are no concrete walls; it’s just a very antiquated race track and the safety is not at all up to NASCAR’s standards and it’s a shame that we have to have accidents like that to prove it. Hopefully something will change the next time we come back with our Caterpillar Chevrolet."

WHAT HAPPENED? "(Greg) Biffle jumped over the curb there and lost the nose and came back across the race track in the dirt. I tried to time it just right and he was slower than I thought he was going to be. It was disappointing our Caterpillar Chevrolet was running good. We were in good sequence to pit one more time for a splash of fuel and go. Just really sad to see the antiquated walls around this race track and a lack of safety. They have no problems spending 400 million dollars in Daytona, but they could spend a few million dollars here on safety and make a lot of drivers happy."

ARE YOU OKAY? "It was violent. My hit into the wall wasn’t that bad, it was the shot that I got from (Michael) McDowell. Thankfully all of us are safe, but not at all where I wanted to be at the end of the day."
