Running Their Mouth: TUMS Fast Relief 500

_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 sneak peek at what they all were thinking following the TUMS Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway:_ "It's a good bounce back. I just gotta thank all my fans for sticking with me on Twitter and everything, giving me some hope that the last two weeks were in the past. I knew all those guys were going to be aggressive to try to get a win. We just had the best car there at the end. The 48 (Jimmie Johnson) didn't do anything that he shouldn't have, and made sure he protected his points lead. He gave us a little bit of respect as well." _Denny Hamlin_ Read More »

This week, here’s a sneak peek at what they all were thinking following the NASCAR Banking 500 at Lowe's Motor Speedway:_ "We've taken a lot of pride through the years to run well here in everyone's backyard. The fact that Lowe's is our sponsor and the track sponsor has always been something cool to win and celebrate. Spending that moment with the Lowe's executives in Victory Lane has been special, and to do it here for the last race that the track is sponsored by Lowe's is cool. The perfect weekend is what Chad (Knaus, crew chief) always wanted to do. Win every practice, qualifying, and the race... and we got it." _Jimmie Johnson_ Read More »

This week, here’s a peek at what they all were thinking following the Pepsi 500 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California:_ "Real good day. There were points where the (No.) 42 (Juan Pablo Montoya) was better than us. I think a couple cars like the (No.) 11 (Denny Hamlin) for a handful of laps showed some really, really good pace. But it seemed like on the long haul for the majority of the race, we had what we needed. We had solid pit stops. Thankfully, it wasn't down to a two tire strategy or fuel only or something goofy at the end." _Jimmie Johnson_ Read More »

To win the manufacturers' title for Chevy by winning this race is awesome. Chevrolet has been a big part of my career, and General Motors, in general, has. To be the team that wins the race today and locks down the championship for them is a huge sense of pride for us." _Tony Stewart on winning the manufacturers' title_ Read More »

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 »

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 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 »

This week, here’s a peek at what they all were thinking following the Chevy Rock & Roll 400 at Richmond International Raceway:_ "I've got to thank the fans -- everyone who's wearing that number 11 hat or shirt. 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

"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 »

"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 »
