What drivers said on the World Wide Technology Raceway
This is what the drivers said after Sunday’s World Cup opener at the World Wide Technology Raceway near St. Petersburg. Louis.
Joey Logano – Winner: “It’s not going to be better than that. Running for the front like that is Kyle (Busch), one of the winners. It was a lot of fun. Crossing each other back and forth. I knew it was coming. I did it for him; I knew he would do it for me. We we crossed back and forth back there in the last leg there several times. Congratulations to Pennzoil Mustang for sure. It’s best to win a little bit this season, start collecting points, playoff points … in the right way, and (military commander Paul Wolfe) made a good phone call and put in two tires. Blaney did a good job of pushing it down, which kept me close and able to move. That’s a good run. “
Kyle Busch – Completion 2: “My car was better outside, but it took several times to roll over. Cold tires, reboot – no help behind me. I put my hand out the window and showed Kurt (Busch) to push me along and Joey (Logano) was half the car outside the window trying to see, so a hand sign would not be helpful, so I didn’t, which made Kurt go back a long way. I got into Turn 1 on my own and I was a long way off. When you become a person on the inside, you just take the person out and it’s over. I found a crossover but threw it in (Turn) 3 too far. It rang all four tires. I had no intention of going down the right corner to be outside, so I do not know. “
Kurt Busch – Finishes 3: “I thought there was a sign that the time would come and I would push hell out of the 18 (Kyle Busch). We messed up the whole brother. We should have won that. There should be a Toyota on the winning road, Busch in the best way. (Joey) Logano, he did nothing smart – we just messed up to start. “
Ryan Blaney – Finished 4th: We had a very fast car. I did very well to win and I just made a mistake in the pits and got out at 17 and by the time we got back to the race and lead I had no tires. I take pride in the Dent Wizard team all day. The car was very fast, it didn’t do a good job of killing people at the last stop. ”
Aric Almirola – Finished 5: “It was a tough day for us. We really needed that. It changed last month. We’ve been going through the top 10 and finishing 20 or the worst in the last month and a half. He is truly proud of the effort today. It was like a flawless day and ran within the top five throughout the day. (Crew CEO Drew Blickensderfer) and the team members did a great job. We’re about to have what we need to compete with these guys to take the lead. “
Erik Jones – Finished 7th: “Our day was over all day. We lost some places at the end and just started again strong. We kind of struggled with it in the afternoon. It was a good day for us. We needed a top 10 run and we got today with the No. 43 Bommarito Automotive Group Chevy. to be a little better. I think we have some things we can use to get there and be a little faster than some of the guys. We’ll keep going, but it was a tough day for us. “
Ross Chastain – Finishes 8: Driving a car was dangerous. It’s one thing to do once, but I just keep chasing guys. At this level, I should be better than that. “
AJ Allmendinger – Finished 10th: “I am very happy today. I had no idea what to expect without performance or qualification and that the car needed to be repaired. The team made the car feel better all day. In the end, we needed a little space, but we were good in the end. I am proud to work from start to finish to find the top 10 finishers for a great weekend (after winning the Xfinity Saturday Saturday in Portland).
Austin Cindric – Finishes 11: “I’m proud of the boys’ fitness, the tough competition for them and we are proud of their progress. Obviously the strongest week for Team Penske to get Joey (Logano) another victory, we have a lot of strength as a team. We had a trap door down, and that took away a lot of the rear power and led me in the wrong direction. “
Justin Haley – Finishes 14th: “We were not doing well all day, but we had a great way in the end to get a good day. I am proud of everyone for working so hard to get us back in the top 15.”
Austin Dillon – Finished 15th: “Today was a difficult day, but the No. 3 Find Bioethanol group did not give up. “-” Looking back, we could have made our car even harder, we could have had another day. It was a good idea to bring NASCAR to St. Louis, especially in celebration of the 20 Million NASCAR Miles at e15. “
AUSTIN DILLON – Finished 16th: “The speed is in our 3CHI Chevrolet and we were able to show it today, especially at the start of the race as we ran ahead and competed in front of the World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway. It was a crazy day for this RCR team. caused NASCAR to punish us.We fought back from the same line to finish 16, which means a lot since we were so far away from 30 in the race. we shall perish. ”
