2014 Michigan II: Ford NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Quotes

JOEY LOGANO, No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Fusion - FINISHED 3rd

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE RESTARTS? "I had a bunch of good ones. The last one wasn’t the greatest. I got through the gear box good and had the 24 cleared and I should have pulled down in front of him and got that draft but he got up next to me and pulled me back so hard that I couldn’t get away from him. He was able to get position on me into one and once he got that clean air I knew I had one more shot. I knew I was really good into one and that was his weak point. I drove it off there and got him wiggled a little bit getting underneath him and cleared him again but he was able to pull me back again off the corner and then I got loose under him trying to maintain what I had and came in third."

CARL EDWARDS, No. 99 EcoBoost Ford Fusion - Finished 23rd

"We were so loose I just couldn’t drive it. It looked like Greg (Biffle) had a good run and we had speed in qualifying so that gives us something to look forward to but we were just too loose today to be able to do anything."

BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion - Finished 8th

"That was a good finish to come home eighth after hitting the wall. We had some pretty good adversity there with the blown tire. I am not sure why that happened. We didn’t have any indication of it and there was no real reason to. I was about the least aggressive you could be and did a run before that where I was more aggressive and didn’t even come close to showing signs of an issue. I don’t know. I think we just got a bad tire. It is hard to say but the team did a hell of a job to overcome that and get an eighth place finish out of what should have been probably a 25th or 30th place finish."

RICKY STENHOUSE JR., No. 19 Zest Ford Fusion - Finished 15th

"It was a good solid top-15. We qualified 10th and finished 15th and ran right around 15th the whole time which is kind of a goal. Obviously we want to run top-10 and pass as many cars as we can but all in all we accomplished what we were looking to do. Our Zest Ford Fusion needs to get better still but I think we made some gains on it this weekend. I look forward to the test tomorrow and hopefully we can learn some more stuff."

GREG BIFFLE, No. 16 3M Ford Fusion - Finished 10th

"You know, I guess it was a good day. We got a top-10. Really we wanted to run up in the top-five. We had a car to do that and that track position we would get loose around other cars. We still have to work on that with our race cars. We get around other cars and can’t drive them as good. It was a great day for us because we had a lot more speed than last time here. I lost the handle the last quarter of the race. I feel like we had a top-five car but the last quarter of the race the track started to slicken up and guys came on hard like the 15 and other guys. We have worked really hard and been off all year. It is a huge improvement for us." JEFF GORDON WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WAY LOGANO WAS RUNNING RESTARTS. DID YOU NOTICE ANYTHING WHERE YOU WERE AT? "You can’t complain if you are on the front row on a restart. If you are complaining and you are the guy on the front row then you’ve got a problem."

MARCOS AMBROSE, No. 9 Black & Decker Ford Fusion - Finished 12th

We will take that. We really wanted a top-10 but we will take 12th and we were a lot better than in the spring so we have made progress and that is good. I am proud of the team for their hard work to make those improvements. We will look forward to Bristol next weekend."

TREVOR BAYNE, No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion - Finished 41st

HOW WAS THE CAR? IT SEEMED LIKE YOU WERE MAKING YOUR WAY STEADILY FORWARD BEFORE THE ACCIDENT. "The car was OK. We had something we could work with. It’s pretty easy to get through those first 10 to 15 cars, but when you get to about 25th, the pace picks up and it’s more difficult to pass. We were almost to that point and we were just going to keep working on the car and try to get it to turn better. We could have had a top 20 day at least but we got caught up in somebody else’s mess. It kind of stinks but you’ll have that from time to time. I hate that it’s happened a few times in a row now. I hate that for these guys who work so hard and hopefully next time we don’t have that kind of luck."

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE INCIDENT? "I’m not really sure. I couldn’t really see much in front of me. I was following the 7 car or whoever was in front of me and the next thing I know three cars slid down in front of us, I got on the brakes hard and couldn’t get it slowed down in time. It wasn’t much of a hit but it doesn’t take much to damage these things."
