Ford Performance NASCAR: Atlanta Accident Quotes

CHRIS BUESCHER, No. 17 Violet Defense Ford Mustang – “First off, our Violet Defense Ford Mustang was really fast and I’m proud of everybody for that.  I made a mistake on pit road by getting a speeding penalty and that put us back in the field.  We drove back up to third.  The speed was there and we were doing it without unnecessary pushes in the center of the corner.  I haven’t seen a replay to know exactly what happened, but I’ve got a pretty good feeling.”


KEVIN HARVICK, No. 4 Busch Light Ford Mustang – “I think he just caught me so quick right there in the middle of the corner and then he kind of was up on the right rear part of the corner and he came back down and when he came back down it just spun the thing out.  I don’t think he actually even hit me, but it started chattering the rear tires and then I was just along for the ride.”


HARRISON BURTON, No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Mustang – “I don’t even know what caused our wreck.  I was looking back and forth between the windshield and the mirror trying to block people from being aggressive and taking you in the middle of three-wide.  I looked back and forth and by the time I looked back they were wrecking in front of me.  It’s just one of those deals.  It was such a frustrating deal.  I feel like our qualifying effort was not very good, obviously.  I about crashed in qualifying, but I felt really good about our car in the race, but I just could not gain track position to maintain it.  It’s really, really hard to leapfrog your way forward a lot of spots.  It’s just frustrating how that worked out.  Once you’re back there, you’re bound to get pushed into all the wrecks for sure.”


ARIC ALMIROLA, No. 10 Smithfield Ford Mustang – “I’m OK.  It knocked the wind out of me, mostly because it caught me by surprise, but I’m OK.  I blew a tire.  I just blew a tire.  I have no idea why.  We had way less laps on that set of tires than we had earlier, so I don’t know.”
