Sam Hornish, Jr. led 114 of the 200 laps Saturday afternoon and captured the Sam’s Town 300 from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Fellow Ford Racing driver Trevor Bayne placed fourth and Bayne’s teammate Travis Pastrana finished in 10th place. Reed Sorenson (16th) and Brad Keselowski (37th) were the other Ford drivers in the field. Below is post-race reaction from some of those drivers. SAM HORNISH JR., No. 12 Wurth Ford Mustang (Finished 1st) VICTORY LANE INTERVIEW “This feels awesome. The car was great. One of the things I said when we did the ride around was what a great crowd we had here. I didn’t know until this morning that this was the Sam’s Town 300. It is kinda cool that I was able to win it. I have to thank all the people at Penke Racing and Roush Yates engines for giving us this opportunity. It is great to get Penske Racing’s first victory back in a Ford. We were so close at Daytona. Man, the car was awesome today. It was a real joy to drive. I gotta thank all the guys on the Penske team for giving me an awesome car to race with. When you have a car that is good you are always worried something bad is going to happen or you will get caught in somebody else’s problem. I am glad that didn’t happen today.” TREVOR BAYNE, No. 6 World Financial Group Ford Mustang (Finished 4th) ON HIS RACE: “We had a lot of ups and downs today but we fought back every single time. These guys never got down. You couldn’t tell a difference on the radio in their tone of voice. That is what it takes. We have to take bad days, and this should have been a 12th place day after we wrecked, and we finished fourth. We had a chance to win it at the end and didn’t get position on them. I am really proud.” TRAVIS PASTRANA, No. 60 Roush Fenway Racing Ford Mustang (Finished 10th) YOU PASSED A LOT OF CARS OUT THERE TODAY, WHAT WAS YOUR DAY LIKE? “I am figuring if we can be eighth to 12th the first ten races – I had a sit down with Chad (Norris) and he told me I could drive here but not to overdrive the beginning. He said, ‘We are going to play it on the conservative side.’ I told him I wanted it to be more free. If we had gone with what I thought I wanted after practice I probably would have crashed. It is awesome to rely on this Roush Fenway Ford team. I am just excited to have finished a race after last weekend. We learned something even though practice was canceled. Last weekend we had a lot of practice but we have no idea what we would have done for the race. I am really excited for the guys and I know there is a lot I need to work on for next weekend but a top-10 finish here, I will definitely take it.” BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang (Finished 37th) YOU WERE LOOKING AT THE FRONT END, WHAT DID IT TURN OUT TO BE CAUSING THE VIBRATION? “I don’t know. We don’t know or we would have it fixed by now. It is disappointing because the Discount Tire Ford was really fast. It looks like my teammate Sam Hornish is really fast. Something just broke in the mid part of the race and we couldn’t figure it out. It kept getting worse and worse. Something was broke in the front end. It just wasn’t going to run in lap speed and something eventually broke really big going down the straightaway and we needed to get off the track before we got somebody else wrecked or brought out a yellow. It is just really unfortunate.”
