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 »

It's about seeing those guys and seeing them celebrating and smiling in Victory Lane when I got there.

Can't expect to win, can't expect not to win. I knew that I had to get locked into somebody's rear bumper if I was going to run up to the front. And even then you don't know if it's going to work out. I gotta apologize to Carl for wrecking him, but man the rule is you can't below the yellow line. He blocked, and I wasn't going below it. I don't want to wreck a guy but you're forcing the situation. This is NASCAR racing, and this is cool. I can't believe it." _Brad Keselowski_ Read More »

Running Their Mouth: Subway Fresh Fit 500K

"He [Rick Hendrick] makes dreams come true. I watched Tim Richmond win after he was sick, [and] this is as big a deal to me. Arlene [Martin's wife], thank you for letting me do it. I knew Tony Stewart was good for awhile... I knew I had the opportunity to lose it. But Tony raced me clean." _Mark Martin, race winner_ "You can't say you're unhappy running second, especially to Mark Martin. It's good to see him still kicking butt. It just shows a guy like him can kick our butts like everyone else... Really proud of Darian Grubb and all the guys on this team. I can taste it. I know it's coming." _Tony Stewart, finished 2nd_ Read More »
