PLAYERS: Jeff BurtonRyan Newman

Ryan Newman and Juan Pablo Montoya got together and collected Jeff Burton on lap 191 of the Irwin Tools Night Race from the Bristol Motor Speedway. Below is the reaction from Newman crew chief Tony Gibson and Jeff Burton on what happened on the track.


WHAT HAPPENED? “It (the crash) drove the frame into the motor and it’s just too far gone. We couldn’t fix it; not safe enough to go back out.”

WHAT DID RYAN NEWMAN SAY ABOUT THE NO. 42 (JUAN PABLO MONTOYA)? “Well he just said somebody got into the left-rear of him and cut the left-rear tire. The lap before that he started getting really loose and then the very next lap, it just turned around on him. So, he didn’t say anything about the No. 42 car. I think we were going to spinout no matter what with that left-rear tire. By the time we saw it he has already spun. It’s a shame. The Outback Steakhouse is a great sponsor. We had finally gotten some track position to do something with it and we were a little bit tight, but we thought we’d be okay. It’s just misfortune. We’re rooting for the No. 14 (Tony Stewart) now; he’s doing pretty good.”

JEFF BURTON, NO. 31 CATERPILLAR CHEVROLET – Sidelined in crash on lap 191:

WHAT HAPPENED? ‘I saw Ryan (Newman) got in trouble and he started spinning. He looked like he was going to stay against the wall, and so I committed to the bottom and then he started in and I couldn’t get turned back to the right. It was pretty disappointing. We had a really fast car tonight. The CAT Chevrolet was really good and we needed a good run and needed something good to happen. We had a good enough car tonight to have that happen. It’s just been one of those years. I guess the saying that if he wouldn’t put it on you if you couldn’t take it, so I guess I must be pretty tough.”
