Ford Performance NASCAR: Frankie Muniz Daytona NXS Accident Quotes

RANKIE MUNIZ, No. 35 Ford Performance Ford Mustang Dark Horse – WHAT HAPPENED?  “After that last cycle of pit stops, after the stage break, we decided to go back to the back.  We wanted to just keep riding around a little bit to get some experience.  Our whole thing was just be there at the end, so we were trying to be as safe as possible.  There was a bunch of pretty fast cars behind us, so I was just staying on the inside letting them go by and before I knew it I just saw a bunch of smoke and tons of cars going all over the place.  I thought I picked the right side to go through, but I just happened to go in the grass and the grass is still so wet from all the rain, so I just lost the rear and ran into someone.  It’s bad luck, really, because that’s what getting through something like that is – you get lucky if you make it.  Unfortunate because we were literally trying to be cautious.  Even the whole first run we were chilling where we were and just kind of getting comfortable.  I just did my first real pit stop ever.  I had hoped to do more than that to get more experience, so it is unfortunate.  Joey Gase Motorsports worked really hard.  Obviously, they’re trying to teach me really quick.  I”ve got so much to learn, but unfortunately we’re done early and by the looks of it it’s gonna be another crash-filled race and if we could have just finished we probably would have had a really good finish, but it is what it is.  I hate the term ‘that’s racing.’  It’s my least favorite term in the history of life, but it is especially here.  We didn’t do anything wrong, we just got caught up in whatever happened.”
