“Really, not as disappointed as you’d think. I wanted to win, and I knew that going into (the last-chance race) that starting in the rear (of the ‘250’), your chances of winning are slim to none – so, it’s not really that disppointing. I think if you go into it starting in the Top-15, your chances are a lot better going into it.”


“The heat race was our downfall. We moved up really quick in it in a few laps, and then cars got crossed up in front of us and we got turned around. It actually bent the rear end, too. It moved that in the car. We got it straightened up a bit, but it’s not right. It’s still not right.

“No matter who makes it (from the last-chance), you don’t stand a very good chance. There’s so many good cars here. That was out downfall of the day.”
