DODGE QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“I think New Hampshire reminds me a little bit of Phoenix,” Busch said. “I’ve always liked Phoenix and the racing there a lot and have had quite a few miles around that track. The way that you have to slide a car around on a flat track like that requires a loose setup and that’s the way I like to set my cars up.”
Kurt Busch, No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger

DID YOU KNOW?
• Kurt Busch has led 359 laps in 18 career starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. His 786 laps led this season is best among all drivers in the NSCS.
• In four NHMS starts, Sam Hornish’s career-best finish is eighth (June 2009).
• Penske Racing has won a NSCS race in each of the last 20 years (1991-2010).

KURT BUSCH – 10 TO GO TO THE CHASE
• Busch has 15 combined wins at the 10 race tracks leading up to the Chase - (New Hampshire – 3, Pocono -2, Michigan – 2, Bristol – 5, Atlanta – 3).
• Bush has 66 combined top-10 finishes at the 10 race tracks leading up to the Chase (Loudon – 9, Daytona – 10, Chicago – 5, Indy – 3, Pocono – 10, Watkins Glen – 3, Michigan – 8, Bristol – 11, Atlanta – 7).
• Busch has a 243-point advantage over the driver currently 13th in the standings (Dale Earnhardt Jr.).
• Busch’s combined average finish at the 10 races leading up to the Chase is 15.5.
• Busch has scored four straight finishes of sixth or better at New Hampshire.
• Busch has three wins, six top fives and nine top 10s at NHMS.

ENGINEERING TALK; NEW HAMPSHIRE
“Last year we had some good races in Loudon, and I’m excited to get back on track with a solid run at the flat one-mile track. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a difficult place to get the right setup on the car because of the need to rotate the center of the corner and still have good forward drive on the throttle. We have had good luck with the red, white and blue AAA/Go Penske paint scheme on the No. 77 Dodge in the past and we hope that the same will hold for this weekend.”
Travis Geisler, No. 77 AAA/Go Penske Dodge Charger

“Loudon is a unique racetrack. It has aspects of both Richmond and Phoenix all rolled into one. We work really hard to get the car to turn the center (of the corners) and maintain forward drive for late into a run. It is so hard to pass, you really need the complete package to win there – brakes, handling and pit stops.”
Jay Guy, No. 12 Penske AAA Dodge Charger


DODGE DRIVER QUOTES
“Loudon, you really have to pay attention to that track because that's the first Chase race when we go there in September. You never really pinpoint a specific date; you just hope that you have a cushion when it comes down to two or three to go to get into the Chase."
Kurt Busch, No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger

“We were really good on the long run at New Hampshire last spring. We were fourth going into the last pit stop, we pitted but a handful of other cars stayed out. We were really hounding the No. 14 car to get around him before the rain came to end the race. If we could've done that, I think we would've had a strong top-three finish. It was a good day for us regardless, but it could've been a lot better.

“We have definitely run well at New Hampshire in the past and at the flatter tracks. As different as they look, New Hampshire and Pocono have a lot in common with how flat the racetrack is and how little grip you really have. The Mobil 1 team tends to run well at the flatter tracks and I'm looking forward to having a strong run with the AAA/Go Penske Dodge this weekend.”
Sam Hornish Jr., No. 77 AAA/Go Penske Dodge Charger


“The short tracks have been very kind to us. We’ve been knocking on the door of the top-10 in just about every short track race this year. It would be nice to have another one of those races this weekend to put ourselves in position to pick up our best finish of the season. We need a solid run to get back on our feet. We’ve had some ups and downs over the last few weeks, but everyone on this team is putting forth the maximum effort. It would be nice to have a good, clean run at Loudon and then continue to improve every week until the end of the season.”
Brad Keselowski, No 12 Penske/AAA Dodge Charger

Saturday, June 26, 2010



Dodge in 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series

• Dodge has four wins in the 2010 NNS season (Allgaier – Bristol and Keselowski – Talladega, Richmond and Nashville).

• Dodge has earned three poles this season. Keselowski – Las Vegas, Bristol and Allgaier – Nashville

• Dodge will unveil its NNS Dodge Challenger at Daytona in July.

DID YOU KNOW
• Brad Keselowski has as many top-five finishes as any other Nationwide Series competitor has top 10s.

• Justin Allgaier finished 13th in his only previous NASCAR Nationwide Series start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (June 2009).

• The No. 22 Penske Racing Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger team will use chassis PRS-034 during Saturday’s 200-mile race at New Hampshire. Keselowski drove this chassis to a victory at Richmond in April.

• The Dodge Challenger makes its return to the Nationwide Series next week at Daytona International Speedway.

JUSTIN ALLGAIER – No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge
Highlights:

• Allgaier earned his first NASCAR Nationwide Series win this year at Bristol Motor Speedway, leading a 1-2 Penske Racing, Dodge finish.

• Allgaier has earned one pole this season (Nashville).
• In 15 Nationwide Series races in 2010, Allgaier has accumulated five top-five and eight top-10 finishes.

• Allgaier’s third-place position in the point standings is best among full-time, Nationwide Series-only drivers. Allgaier leads fellow Nationwide-only driver Brendan Gaughan, currently ranked seventh, by 366 points.

BRAD KESELOWSKI – No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge
Highlights:


• Keselowski leads the Nationwide Series driver standings with a 237-point advantage over Carl Edwards.

• Keselowski earned back-to-back wins at Talladega and Richmond earlier this season.

• Keselowski leads the Nationwide Series in top-five finishes (12), top-10 finishes (14) and laps completed.

• Keselowski has led the Nationwide Series point standings since his win at Talladega in April.

• Keselowski extended his NASCAR Nationwide Series record of 82 consecutive races without a DNF (Did Not Finish) at Kentucky Speedway last week.

• Keselowski has completed all 2,799 laps contested this season and has led the field for 522 of those circuits.

DODGE NATIONWIDE DRIVER QUOTES
“New Hampshire is a fun place to race because it’s one of those tracks where you are racing it (the track) as much as you are the competitors. It’s very hard to pass, especially in these Nationwide cars, because you get too loose underneath someone and you don’t have the power to beat them off the corner.

“It feels great to come out of those three non-companion weekends with a comfortable lead in the standings, but there is still a lot of racing left to go. The four races with the new car are going to play a very important role in determining the championship. If we can make it through those races unscathed, beginning next week in Daytona, then we’ll reevaluate our season and figure out our strategy for the final half. My philosophy has always been to go to the race track to win and the points will take care of themselves, but we need to do what’s best for Penske Racing.”
Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger

“New Hampshire is a great race track. The fans up there are very passionate about racing. It’s a flat mile with some very distinct grooves that you typically wouldn’t run at other tracks. It’s a very interesting place, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger

Dodge Motorsports Notes & Quotes - Final Qualifying - New Hampshire

LOUDON, N.H. , Jun 25, 2010 - KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger) Qualified 3rd
“Qualifying has been good for us this season. Steve Addington's experience has helped a lot. He gets excited for Friday's and trying to put our Miller Lite Dodge on the pole. The car stuck great. The track conditions were warmer and I knew that I couldn't overdrive the corners anymore than we did in practice. We made some good adjustments and it paid off. It's really important to qualify well here and start up front, especially knowing how important this race is in the fall. It just seems like all the adjustments that we made to the car today gave it speed. We've got great data to go into tomorrow's practice sessions and tweak some things to make it fast on the long runs as well as restarts which are critical here at Loudon."

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT GETTING AND MAINTAINING TRACK POSITION IN THIS RACE? “I’ve always thought that this place races really well. It’s not like you can’t make progress getting back towards the front if you don’t find yourself in good track position. Starting up front always has its benefits. We hope that we can get in and file in early on and possibly lead a lap to get those five bonus points. I think that you can pass here a little bit better than some tracks.”

HOW DO YOU DECIDE HOW MUCH TIME TO SPEND IN QUALIFYING AND RACE TRIM IN PRACTICE? “I think that it’s important to do both. Last year I think that it rained out qualifying in the first race here. We knew that it was going to rain out, but even knowing that we still did a mock up qualifying run so that we had notes for when we came back here in September. I think that you have to split your time wisely when there’s weather around, but you still have to do both.”

HOW DO YOU PROJECT WHAT YOU DO HERE IN SEPTEMBER AT THIS RACE IN JUNE? “It’s just one race at a time; one session at a time. We hope that we get some time out on the track tomorrow to get our Miller Lite Vortex Dodge better. When you make a run like we did today, you put it in your notebook; write down that the track temperature was 110 degrees. You write down the ambient temperature and when you come back in September it could be 20 degrees cooler. We might need to scuff tires then instead of going out on stickers or visa-versa. It’s always good to try and stay ahead of the game and do as much homework as you can.”

SAM HORNISH JR. (No. 77 AAA/Go Penske Dodge Charger) 8th
"We freed the car up for qualifying. The car was really strong in the middle of the corner, just a little too free off which hurt our drive off. I think that we had a top-five car if we didn't have that little hiccup. I'm really happy with the AAA Dodge this weekend. This is one of my favorite places to come to because it reminds me a lot of Milwaukee. The car was pretty good in race trim. I feel like have a little bit to go to get it where we need it for Sunday. Some of the things that we found in qualifying should help us out a bit tomorrow and Sunday."

BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 12 AAA Insurance/Go Penske Dodge Charger) Qualified 14th
"Our AAA Dodge was really loose, but fast. A solid effort by my guys. We carried over some things from practice that really helped in qualifying.”

YOU HAD A HANDFUL OF STEERING WHEEL? “Oh yeah, but we adjusted and got something out of the second lap. That’s what you have to do as a team and a driver."

KURT SAYS LOOSE IS FAST. CAN YOU APPLY THAT ADVICE TO YOUR SETUP? “Heck yeah. There's a reason why Kurt is on the provisional pole. He’s really fast here. I try to listen to him and soak in what I can. We've done some testing stuff, swapping cars and trying to understand what he's doing so well and I’m just soaking it all in."

Dodge Motorsports Notes & Quotes - Kurt Busch Open Interview - New Hampshire

LOUDON, N.H. , Jun 25, 2010 -

THIS YEAR WE’VE SEEN MORE AGGRESSION ON THE RACE TRACK. DO YOU FEEL (DRIVERS HAVE) MORE PERMISSION TO LEAN ON A CAR FROM TIME TO TIME? “I wouldn’t say that it’s changed all that much. NASCAR use to be looking over your shoulder when you had a run-in with somebody or you took it over the line to far and they would step in. Now it seems like you can turn a guy over on his lid and get three-week probation. It’s definitely a different game. When I first came in 10 years ago, I ran into a couple of guys at Rockingham and (NASCAR) threatened to park me because I was accidentally bumping into guys. It’s definitely a different game.”

IS WINNING AT CHICAGOLAND ON YOUR BUCKET LIST? “Yeah, I’m just not as good at my bucket list as Jimmie Johnson is (laughs). He can just say that he wants to run Bristol and he goes and does it. Then he says that he wants to win a road course and he goes and does it. He’s pretty good at putting something on his dart board and nailing it. For us, Chicago has been a tough track over the years with motor failures or just not having enough speed. My bucket list – my short term one anyway – is nothing near what Johnson’s is, but I don’t have a top five (finish) at Chicagoland Speedway. I’m just going to start small. If I get (a top five) there and at Watkins Glen and Kansas, then I’ll have a top five at all the race tracks on the circuit.”

DO YOU PUT MORE EMPHASIS ON THIS RACE BECAUSE IT’S IN THE CHASE LATER IN THE YEAR? “I think that each of the tracks that you see for the first time of the year that are in the Chase, it’s not like you do anything terribly different, but you hopefully get into more detail. With all the changes that you make, I know that we’re always recording temperature, overcast conditions and different things for engine tuning. Like today, Steve (Addington) wanted to make a second mock qualifying run, normally we only do two. We did an extra just to make sure that we had one extra minor detail ironed out so that when we come back here in September, we’ve got all of our home work done.”

IS THERE MORE AGGRESSION ON THE RACE TRACK THIS YEAR? “There’s more that’s going on. It’s just that there’s not a penalty that you’d know was coming from NASCAR. Now, it’s more policed by the drivers. Ten years ago, if you got into somebody, you’d be on probation or (NASCAR) would park you for the rest of the race. We saw what happened at Atlanta earlier this year and what had happened after that.”

ARE YOU IN LINE TO GET BACK AT JEFF GORDON? “I would say that I’m in the line, but I’m not at the top of the list. There are a lot of guys in front of me that want to go talk to Jeff “Bulldozer” Gordon.”

DOES IT GET TO A POINT THAT IT’S STARTING TO GET OUT OF HAND? “No. We’re just coming off of one of those rough and tumble weeks of a road course where it’s really easy to get into people. Martinsville…we’ll go there and I’m sure we’ll have discussions right after that race. We go to Daytona next week, a lot of things happen at the restrictor-plate races these days.”

WHY ARE WE NOT SEEING AS MANY GUYS WIN RACES? “You have different waves of teams that get hot; some teams cool off. Right now, the Gibbs guys have jumped to the front, showing their strength. Then there’s a bunch of guys knocking on the door that are right there. It just might be a couple more races and then we’ll have those 10 winners before we know it. It’s really hard to say what’s different or why.”

Dodge Motorsports Notes & Quotes - NNS Race Final - New Hampshire

LOUDON, N.H. , Jun 26, 2010 - BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger) Finished 2nd
“It was a really good race for our Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger. It all came down to that final restart. The 20 and 18 were going really hard and it looked like Joey (Logano) spun his tires a little bit and jumbled everything up and I was able to make up some spots. Some weeks that goes to your advantage and other weeks it goes against you. We had a car that was pretty good. The 18 and 20 were really good. We made some adjustments there at the end and got our Dodge as good as it was going to get. It came down to track position and we just didn’t quite have it. It was still a strong showing for our Ruby Tuesday Dodge. I’m happy to come out of here with a second-place finish.”

“The difference was at the start of the race. The 18 car was just a little faster. We worked on our car and got it just as fast at the end if not just a touch better, but did not have track position. It takes a whole race and we were just off that little bit, just didn’t quite execute as well as the 18 car did today, but we’ll keep working on that. It’s an awesome showing. We’ll happy to come home second, but we want to win.”

BEFORE THAT LAST PIT STOP, YOU RADIOED IN AND SAID YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD A SHOT AT BUSCH, BUT HAD A LITTLE HANG-UP ON THE LEFT REAR DURING THAT STOP. HOW MUCH DID THAT HURT IN YOUR BID TO WIN THIS RACE? “We had an awesome short-run car. I think that is where we were stronger than Kyle. When the race came down to a short run, we just weren’t close enough to him (for the restart). It might have made a difference, it might not. It’s hard to tell. That’s just the way the breaks go. I’m behind my guys in good times and I’m behind them in bad times. We’ve still got a lot to look forward too. We’ve done a lot of great things this year and we’ll keep doing it.”

PAUL WOLFE (crew chief, No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger)
“It wasn’t a bad day overall. We led some laps early and got out front. That was key today, keep track position. Overall, we just didn’t have as good a car as we needed to win the race. We had a bad pit stop at the end that cost us five positions and put us behind a little. Brad did a great job all race. We just needed to be a little bit better.”

DID YOU THINK FOUR TIRES WAS GOING TO BE ENOUGH WITH THAT LATE RESTART? “It put us in good position. The 18 and 20 had 75 laps on their left side tires and we thought we had them. We just struggled a bit on pit road that cost us some positions and just couldn’t get back up to Kyle.”

JUSTIN ALLGAIER (No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger) Finished 6th
“Our Verizon Dodge was strong. Unfortunately we got some right-front fender damage early in the race and that just slowed us a bit all race. Then on one of the restarts, we made an adjustment to free the car up and the car just got too free. We lost a couple spots and just kind of rode there all day. A top 10 and we’ll take it. It’s good for points and a nice rebound from last weekend. We move on to next week with the new car, the Dodge Challenger. I’m really excited to get to Daytona and drive that car.”
