Running Their Mouth: AAA 400

Running Their Mouth: AAA 400

_Each week, we’ll go through media reports, interviews, PR, and all of our own stuff to find the best quotes from the Sprint Cup race, capturing the story of how the weekend unfolded. It’s the most original commentary you’ll ever find: the truth, coming straight out of the mouths of the drivers, crew members, and car owners themselves. This week, here’s a peek at what they all were thinking following the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway:_ "It was just an awesome race car, awesome day. I can't thank all the Lowe's employees for all of their support. We had the Race for Relief program on the deck lid and want to point out that Lowe's is going to donate more money now that we won. The fans were great cheering me in when my engine was broken trying to get here to Victory Lane. I am just so happy we had a maximum points day today; that is what we needed to do." _Jimmie Johnson_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what they all were thinking following the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:_ "Alan (Gustafson, crew chief) won that race--that's all I got to say. He took a driver that can't drive Loudon and put a set-up in it that we could run along reasonable. This is a very frustrating race track. I can't believe we won that race. It couldn't be easy. We had to have three caution restarts and all kinds of chances for me to mess up. And I did, but just, I guess, not enough to lose." _Mark Martin_ Read More »

These are the times that I get so excited. I made sure I did everything I did at Pocono. I've only worn this hat two times, and the other one was at Pocono. I made sure I had my gold heat shields on. Everything from Pocono. I had my grandma's St. Jude key chain in there [inside the car]. I was just making sure that I covered all bases when we got here today. This is my house. It has been for the last two years, we just haven't got the win to show it." _Denny Hamlin_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what the drivers were thinking following the Pep Boys Auto 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway:_ "It feels awesome to win at Atlanta, to win on a night like tonight when the Chase and everything has been so tight for the last two months. This team has stepped up. The pit stops were awesome all night. With 11 laps to go, just getting to the front was what I was thinking I needed to do. Once we did it, everything was perfect from there on out. Just a great team effort, something Richard Petty Motorsports really needed." _Kasey Kahne_ Read More »

Running His Mouth: The Best Of Mayfield Speaking Out

Running His Mouth: The Best Of Mayfield Speaking Out

"This would have all been solved if they would have sat down with me before they made their little press conference. We would have talked about it and gotten my doctor involved. All of this never would have happened." "You'd think that if they're gonna show a positive test again that they would do it right this time and take my B sample and send it off to whatever lab we choose. We've been arguing for that for a week, and they won't do that. We're right back to square one with them again. They won't send the B sample out and get it tested at our lab. It just doesn't make sense." Read More »

Running Their Mouth: Lifelock.com 400

"I've been watching [Ron] Hornaday, [Jr.]. I just knew this double-file restart was going to cost us. That was fun! That's what life's all about right there. These guys deserve to win. We could have parked the car yesterday with an hour left in practice. But you know, the best car doesn't usually win. The double file restarts are to mess the best car up so he doesn't win to make it good for the fans. And it did; but luckily, we pulled it off anyway." _Mark Martin_ "We had our struggles. It was an incredible call that [crew chief] Steve Letarte made, and the whole pit crew just did a fantastic job getting us off pit road. Got to thank the Patriot Academy and DuPont. It's a privilege having them on board. We could certainly use a night like this. We're really strong and showing them what we're made of on these [intermediate] tracks." _Jeff Gordon, finished 2nd_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what the drivers were thinking following the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway:_ "We had a strong car, for sure. It was nice to be able to drive away in a line up front and get away from the crowd in the back. I don't know that we did anything wrong. I mean, I've seen replays of it, and he's (Kyle Busch) protecting his position, which he's got to do. It's nobody's fault... it's just racing. I mean, it's a product of the environment. Even if it's 100 percent his fault, I still won't feel good about it. I think racers hold the integrity of the the sport in mind, and it was a good race. It was a good race all night long." _Tony Stewart_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what the drivers were thinking following the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire International Speedway:_ "This is so special. I think your first win, no matter where it's at, is huge. Obviously it's not the way you want to win your first race, in the rain, but 20 years down the road when you look in the record books, no one will know the difference. I'll take them any way I can. This is my home track and where I watched my first Cup race. A lot of guys at Joe Gibbs Racing are from the northeast, so it's cool to get a win here." _Joey Logano, Raybestos Rookie of the Race_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what the drivers were thinking following the Toyota / SaveMart 350 at Infineon Raceway:_ "It feels great. With myself, I've had issues here in the past with finishing anywhere on this course. You know, I think that was really cool to see Richard (Petty) in victory lane with us, and it's a big deal. Richard Petty Motorsports is a great company, and we keep building and trying to make it better and stronger." _Kasey Kahne_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what the drivers were thinking following the LifeLock 400 at Michigan International Speedway:_ "Well, you know, this team deserves to be in the Chase, and we were on the outside looking in with all the trouble we've had. I went for the points, man. We ran out [of fuel], coming off of [turn] four. I told Rick (Hendrick, team owner) just please don't fire me. I qualified 32nd Friday night, and I was laying in bed just worrying about it. Heck, I love this stuff. I want to drive this car forever." _Mark Martin_ Read More »
