BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion (Finished 5th)
ON HIS RACE: “We drove hard all day, we just didn’t have the speed needed to go win the race but we had the speed we needed to have a solid day. The guys did a great job executing today. It is cool to see Tony (Stewart) win, he did a hell of a job driving that thing and it was a good race. I was having fun watching them but I wish I could have gotten up there. It was another solid day but we want to win too so we will keep working to find a little more speed and get up there.”
JOEY LOGANO, No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Fusion (Finished 7th)
ON HIS RACE: “We fought all day basically trying to get a lucky dog after that flat tire. We would get one back and then go down two and then get one back. We were basically trying to get three laps back for the most part. I was just proud of the effort of my guys today. This weekend I thought we were going to finish about 15 laps down today. We weren’t any good in practice and Todd and all the guys did a good job making it better for me. By the end it was a top-five car and we just ran out of time. We were trying to pass as many as I could during the restart but it was so aero tight behind these cars. I feel like that we could have finished in the top-five but considering where we were, we will take that all day.”
CARL EDWARDS, No. 99 Subway Ford Fusion (Finished 14th)
ON HIS RACE: “We just all struggled and I think there is some systemic problem with our car. It is good that we all went the same speed so that at least we know. When three different groups run the same speed and it is not fast enough, it means that we are doing a good job making the car as fast as it can go, but it is up to all of us now to identify exactly where we are missing it. We will address it. We have time before the Chase starts. Now it is just time to buckle down and work.”
THE FACT THAT YOU THREE ROUSH CARS HAVE BEEN PRETTY CONSISTENTLY IN THE SAME GROUP FOR FINISHES, DOES THAT POINT TO ONE COMMON ISSUE IN THE PROGRAM? “We are very fortunate that Ricky is so good and Greg is so good and the crew chiefs, we have guys right now that if everything gets lined up we will go dominate these races. As an organization we are all performing at the same level, we just have to figure out how to get the whole organization moved up, and we will. Everyone is conscious of the issue and we are all working together. Nobody is freaking out. That is what we have to do.”
ARIC ALMIROLA, No. 43 Smithfield Ford Fusion (Finished 18th)
ON HIS RACE: “We just struggled all day long. We were loose and we need to figure out a way to find more grip. I was proud of the guys, they never gave up all day. We kept trying to get it dialed in, we just couldn’t get the grip that we needed. Our whole problem today was not having the grip that we needed to keep up with some of those other guys out there, but we will go to work on it and get ready for Pocono.”
