Ford Racing drivers Brad Keselowski and Greg Biffle were involved in a big crash on lap 48 of the Sprint Cup Series race from the Kentucky Speedway. Below are quotes from both drivers on the accident. BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion (INVOLVED IN ACCIDENT ON LAP 48) WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON WHAT HAPPENED? “It is a wreck. Wrecks happen. It takes a chain of events to get there. We had the bottom lane on two or three restarts in a row and got shuffled back a little bit. We were trying to get patient because it looked like we will get the whole race in before rain and there is no reason to drive like an animal. Apparently I am the only one that got that memo. It is one of those deals.” THE 78 DID APOLOGIZE; DOES THAT MAKE IT ANY BETTER AT ALL? “I know he didn’t intentionally wreck me but it is just one of those things. A chain of events with the way the cars drive and the track has that really bad bump down there and we all know it. There is no reason to go down there but he still did.” HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE TRACK CONDITIONS? “I thought they were pretty good actually. I thought the track had a lot of grip and I like running this track. It is a shame we won’t do as well as we did last year.” WHAT DID YOU SEE ON THE REPLAY? “I got hit from behind or in the quarter panel or however it is. They had a good draft to get up to me and used it and there was nowhere to go so they went through us.” WHAT KIND OF CAR DID YOU HAVE? “We had a decent car. I don’t know if we would have threatened for the win but I think we could have ran fifth and had a decent day. But obviously not now.” HOW HARD WAS THE HIT? “It was a pretty good hit but the back of these Cup cars have a lot of safety zones in them and if there is a place to take a hit like that, that is the spot. I am thankful for that.” WHAT DOES THIS DO TO YOU IN TERMS OF POINTS? DO YOU HAVE TO CHANGE HOW YOU RACE NOW? “Nope. We are just going to go do our thing and we are just on a streak of bad luck. It will turn around and when it does we will be in victory lane and be alright.” DOES KURT’S (BUSCH) APOLOGY HAVE AN AFFECT ON HOW YOU VIEW THE INCIDENT? “I am still wrecked so I don’t know. He is smarter than that. He knows better than that.”   GREG BIFFLE, No. 16 3M Ford Fusion (INVOLVED IN ACCIDENT ON LAP 48) DO YOU THINK THE ROUGH RACE TRACK CAUSED THAT? “No, I don’t think so. It is just a rough race track and he said things are looking dicey out there, the cars do move around a lot on this race track. That doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with that, it just makes it hard to get your car tuned in to get going. That last change there we got our car working pretty good. I was kind of having fun there for the little bit of the race that I was in. I don’t know what happened there. I don’t know what happened with the 18 earlier but we got lucky and missed that one. We weren’t fortunate enough to miss this one. I was trying to get to the bottom to miss the 2 and couldn’t get it. I was on the brakes and the nose might have been on the race track or something. I couldn’t get to the bottom to miss him.” GUYS HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE BUMPS HERE ALL WEEKEND LONG. DOES SOMETHING HAVE TO BE DONE IN YOUR OPINION? “It makes it really difficult to get your car set up here. It is equal for everyone so the car bouncing and jumping all over the place down the straightaway and the corners is kind of what we have to do. It would be no different than racing on a dirt track. If they said we have to race there, we go race there. We race here, so that is what we have to do. Would it be nice to be repaved and we could get our cars set up to haul around this place? Yeah, it would be fun. It is what it is.” HOW DEVASTATING IS IT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN SO EARLY IN THE RACE? “I have been here before. That will knock us out of the top-10 in points but you just have to keep working hard. That is all we can do. We can’t point fingers until we go back and watch the replay and analyze exactly what happened. Reality is we should have been up further but they were wrecking up there too. I don’t know what happened yet but we will have to wait and see. I am sure someone got aggressive or made a mistake or did something to cause that. I don’t think Brad (Keselowski) lost it on his own but we will have to take a look and see.” -Ford Racing PR
