Quotes from Bristol Xfinity Race 1

FORD - CHASE BRISCOE, No. 98 -- HighPoint.com Ford Mustang -- YOU GET TO RUN FOR $100,000 NEXT WEEK AT ATLANTA.  “I’m super-excited to go run for an extra 100-grand.  Thanks to XFINITY.  We were just a fifth to sixth-place car it seemed like most of the night and just was really tight.  There at the end restarts kind of went our way and we were able to salvage a second, so I’m really happy for our HighPoint.com Ford guys and just really excited to get to Atlanta.  That’s one of my favorite race tracks and race for an extra 100-grand, so you can’t beat it.  I’m looking forward to it.”

Notes and Quotes from Bristol Cup Race 1

FORD:

BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Discount Tire Ford Mustang -- VICTORY LANE INTERVIEW -- RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.  “I think everybody on this Discount Tire Ford Mustang team is gonna go to Vegas.  Is it open yet?  Because things have been going our way from the luck of the draw on the qualifying to the last few laps there.  We couldn’t get anything to go our way at the start of the race with cars staying out and I kept getting the bottom lane on restarts and nothing was working out and then right at the end we came in and put two tires on the left and drove up to,  I guess fourth or sixth, I don’t know, something like that and put ourselves in position.  I could see Joey and Chase were getting really racy there and I didn’t know what was gonna happen, but I knew if I kept my eye open something good might happen and, sure enough, it did.  An incredible day.  I’m so happy for the team.  This was a never-give-up effort.  That’s what we’re becoming as a team.”

KEVIN HARVICK, No. 4 Busch Light Ford Mustang -- “It just falls off after lap 30.  We knew that’s what we had with our Busch Light Ford and it went straight 60-some laps.  They did a really good job turning the car around.  It was the total opposite of what we raced last Sunday, so it was a good test session for us.  We just didn’t need a long run.”

Toyota Truck Race Recap - Charlotte

KYLE BUSCH, No. 51 Cessna/Big Machine Hand Sanitizer Toyota Tundra, Kyle Busch Motorsports

Finishing Position: 2nd

Can you talk about the challenges with your Tundra in tonight’s race?

“It doesn’t help showing up to the race track with broke parts on your truck. That was a problem from the get-go. Didn’t have our right-front stopper right so we were all over the splitter. We came in and didn’t know it was broke so had to fix it with a make shift piece and it was way too high. Then we tried to fix it and just never was right. We were out in left field the whole night. Never really had a great feel for the truck or a great driving truck. Just salvaged what I could.”

How much fun was the battle on the last lap with Chase Briscoe?

“You always like to come out on the better end of it of course, but the real mission today was thanking our heroes and I appreciate Mars/Wrigley Confectionary and all their associates for the red, white and blue Supra here today with M&M’s on it. It was a lot of fun to be able to give back to our heroes. Had a good showing and put on a little bit of an exciting show there at the end. I knew being on the inside going into one wasn’t good, but he (Chase Briscoe) got such a bad run off of four that I had no choice.

JOEY LOGANO, No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Mustang -- Finished 1st

WHAT DID YOU LEARN TODAY THAT YOU COULD TAKE INTO NOVEMBER BY WINNING THIS RACE, THE PERFORMANCE YOU HAD, BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS GOING TO BE WON? “You think I'm going to tell you that (laughter)? Definitely, everybody learned something out there today just whether it's racing, the way this traction compound is, the awesome sauce up there, how that worked out, played throughout the race.  There's a lot learned, for sure. We learned that this No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford team is just stout and is not going to get beat if we have the opportunity.  We tried everything we could to regain our track position and get control back of the race.  I knew that last restart was going to be crazy. I have to thank my partners, Moneyline, Auto Trader, AAA, Ford, Coca‑Cola, Snap‑on, everybody that helps this program at Team Penske.  Roush‑Yates motors.  It was cool to see two Fords on the front row at the end of a race like that.  This is a motor racetrack as much as we don't think it is. Proud of the team effort today to make this one come.”

“I’m not really sure. We had all different kinds of strategy today. One of them back-fired on us and the other one paid off for us when the caution came out.

We kind of still couldn’t poke through the hole like we needed too, but the 66 (Timmy Hill) got lined up behind me. Noah (Gragson) got out front about a car and a half and I thought ‘He might be in trouble here’, but then the caution came out. Just really proud of our guys. We had a tough day. I think that there were a couple times in the race that we were down and out, and our guys clawed it out. I was proud of that effort.”

Ford Performance NASCAR: Daytona 500 Media Day (Ryan Blaney)

WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, IS THERE A CERTAIN KIND OF TRACK THAT YOU WANT TO SEE ON THE SCHEDULE IN THE FUTURE? “I think there are a  couple tracks that have come up over the past couple of years that I wish we could go to. The Nashville thing was unfortunate that it hasn’t gotten any more traction than it has. I know a lot of people wanted that. One or two more road courses I thought would be pretty neat. People talk about street courses and things like that. That is tough. There are plenty of really great road courses out there. Some of the tracks like short tracks, that is a given. You have to think realistically of what a NASCAR race can  hold. If you go to South Boston, it is a great race track but you would have to do a lot of work to hold the NASCAR fan base there for a Cup race. It can be done, but can it be done for next year? I don't think so. It might be years down the road. I wish the Nashville Fairgrounds would have happened. That was a really exciting one and a good fan base. I wouldn’t count that one out yet though.”

But it is all good. I got one or two of my 15 or 20 projects done. Getting back down here, it is time to go back racing. Time to refocus and get going with a new team, being back at Roush Fenway but with a handful of new people there.

Toyota Racing Daytona 500 Media Day Quotes - Kyle Busch

KYLE BUSCH, No.18 M&M’s Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing 

Could you just talk a little bit about your relationship with Joe Gibbs and what you thought of when you first knew the possibility existed that you could be one of his drivers?

"Just trying to remember. It's a long time ago. Obviously just, I guess, we kind of went on the race shop tour, if you will, and went to go talk to everybody, but being able to talk to Joe was certainly very high on the list, and getting over there and being a part of Joe Gibbs Racing, being with Tony Stewart, being with Denny Hamlin and having an opportunity to work with those guys and the success that they've already had, and knowing that they're a top‑flight organization, that was one of the highlights for me, but then just to be able to sit down with Joe and really talk with Joe firsthand, lay it all out there on the table, I'm not perfect, I made plenty of mistakes, this is kind of who I am, but obviously there's a lot for me to learn and I could definitely lean on him for a lot of that guidance, and that's what I've done over the course of my career, and he's been there with me and for me every step of the way. We've kind of had this bond, this relationship that he and I have had the utmost respect for one another, and it's turned into this."
