Brad Keselowski led all Ford Racing drivers by coming home in the third place for Sunday’s Food City 500. Greg Biffle was 11th, Casey Mears had a strong showing in 15th, and Rookie of the Year candidate Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. was 16th. Below are post-race comments from those drivers and a few others.
JOEY LOGANO – No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion
WHAT HAPPENED? “We had a fast race car, that’s for sure. I was racing for the lead and it’s frustrating.

WHAT DID YOU SAY TO DENNY? WILL YOU TELL US? “No, I’ll keep that to myself.”
DID YOU FEEL LIKE IT WAS PAYBACK FOR HOW HE FELT YOU RACED HIM AT DAYTONA? “I never did anything wrong in Daytona.”
BUT DO YOU FEEL HE MAY HAVE RETA
