Daytona International Speedway
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
Post-Qualifying Quotes
Dodge Motorsports PR

Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 19th
HOW WAS QUALIFYING? "I just went out there and ran a lap. Either the car is fast or it’s not. Qualifying here at Daytona is pretty routine. I think that we'll end up somewhere between 15 to 20th. Our Miller Lite Dodge can race from anywhere. I'm not too concerned about it.

“Our cars are very similar. To run in the 60s is about where we thought we’d be in qualifying. Our Dodges have proven to be plenty fast in race trim. We’ll just have to see how this pack racing is going to play out.”

HOW DO YOU THINK THE DUELS WILL PLAY OUT? "I think that you'll see the guys who have to make it in the show run really, really hard in the 150s. I think everybody else will be pretty chill."

DO YOU THINK THAT THE DUELS WILL BE MORE LAID BACK COMPARED TO THE SHOOUTOUT? “When I think that I have an answer to that, everybody does something completely different. I would have thought after the first two or three wrecks we’d figure that part out, but we didn’t. I’m not going to try to interject logic and common sense.”

AJ Allmendinger (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 18th
“A solid qualifying run for our Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger. I gave it all that I had. I thought we might be a touch quicker from yesterday. It’s hard to tell as heavy as the wind is today. It’s good to know that the Penske guys build race cars exactly the same because our times have been right on top of each other throughout all of practice. We didn’t think that we had a shot at the pole. Our car has been good. I’m excited about the race. With the way that we ran last night, I know that our cars are fast. We’ll just see where we end up.”

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE DUELS? “You don’t want to tear up a race car before the 500. I think it’s two things; if you have a chance to win the 500 with five laps to go, then you get after it. If it’s a struggle and you’re midpack, fifth to eight, then you try to play conservative and not wreck your car. It’s all about where you position yourself with three or four laps to go like we did last night.”

Robby Gordon (No. 7 SPEED Energy Dodge Charger R/T) Qualified 48th
“We’ve run well on restrictor-plate tracks in the past in our SPEED Energy Dodge. We barley made the show at the fall Talladega race and led (the race) for a while. I’m in the same race car that we ran in Talladega. We qualified around 43rd and was leading by lap 15 or so. We have a shot at the (Daytona) 500 still. We just need to be there at the end of the 150 on Thursday to make a run at making the 500 on Sunday.”

TALKING SHOP WITH PENSKE RACING
“The thing that we didn’t know coming to Daytona is how the cars were going to race in a pack. At the test, we had some packs, but nobody was really aggressive and trying to move. The phenomenon of speedway racing really doesn’t occur until you get 43 guys motivated to go after a checker flag. We saw that in the Shootout and once we get to Sunday, good luck to the guys that think they’re going to take it easy because it’s going to be crazy.”
Travis Geisler, Director of Competition, Penske Racing


DODGE QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"We can't wait for the 2012 NASCAR season to kick off this weekend. We're coming off of a very successful season last year with our two Dodge drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Brad (Keselowski) is a proven winner and we're confident A.J. (Allmendinger) will be a winner for us too. Our partnership with Penske Racing has produced results, so our expectations this season are to win races and compete for the Sprint Cup."
Ralph Gilles, President & CEO – Street and Racing Technology Brand (SRT) and Motorsports

DODGE DRIVER QUOTES
“Our cars are fast. With all the resources going into our Dodge race cars, we have good stuff. I think we’ll have speed, it just matters how the race plays out. I think that if we can work together, going through the Shootout, Duels and getting into the 500, then we’ll have a pretty good idea on how the racing is going to be. More than anything else, I was excited about how Brad and I worked together (in the Shootout). If we can do that, whether it’s a tandem or pack, if we can stick together as a group, we have a chance to being up front at the end of the race.”
A.J. Allmendinger, No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger

DO YOU LET YOURSELF DAYDREAM ABOUT WINNING THE DAYTONA 500? “I think about a moment. To me, when I look at a win, I always think of a moment that created the win. Do you allow yourself to win the 500? Yes. I think about the pass for the win or whatever moment it takes to get the win. That’s the moment that I think about. The wins that I have been fortunate to have, the memories that I have from them are those moments; the moment that you take the lead. Those are the moments that I dream of.”
Brad Keselowski, No 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger

A.J. Allmendinger Open Interview

AJ Allmendinger (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T) YOU RECENTLY WON THE ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY.

WHAT WOULD MEAN TO WIN THE DAYTONA 500 ON SUNDAY? “To come back to a race track after going out there and having a great race, a fun celebration with Michael Shank, to roll into the tunnel and remember what it meant to win (the Rolex 24) and possibly have a chance to do something that I don’t think a lot of people have done – win the Rolex and Daytona 500. There’s a lot that goes into that race for the 500 miles and playing it out right. Obviously the Shootout was crazy. Overall for me, I think the Shell/Pennzoil Dodge is quick. We have a fast race car. We’re going to have a shot at it, but there are a lot of guys that will too. Hopefully, we’ll play it smart and be in the right position at the right time at the end of the race.”

WHAT’S BEEN THE BIGGEST SURPRISE SINCE BEING AT PENSKE RACING? “I don’t know if there are huge surprises. I think how open the team was when I got there and excited the team seemed to be. In that big race shop, there’s a lot of people in there and to walk in there everyday and have people say they can’t wait for the season to start and we’re so happy to have you here, we’re looking forward to it and that kind of stuff. I always knew that their team was run well and the way that they went about things, but just to see how clean that race shop is and see how smooth everything is run amongst the team. Everybody knows their role there and is doing their jobs. It’s fun to see and be around it. It makes me walk in and be even happier to be there.”

IT WAS ROGER PENSKE’S 75TH BIRTHDAY THE OTHER DAY. WHAT DID YOU GUYS GET HIM? “A couple wrecked race cars from the weekend (laughs). Sweet. Happy Birthday to you Roger! (laughs). Just like I tell everybody else in my life, just love.

“It is kind of funny though, he called me on his birthday. To me, that shows me just how impressive Roger Penske is. He’s out on vacation on his birthday with his family, supposed to be relaxing, and he’s texting me. I’m sure he’s doing the same to Brad (Keselowski) and the rest of the race team. He was telling me he’s sorry that he wasn’t at the Shootout. Hopefully we put last week behind us and all the wrong places that we put in and have accidents.”

SO YOU DIDN’T GET HIM ANYTHING? “Yeah (laughs). What do you get someone that has everything?”

WHAT WILL YOUR APPROACH BE FOR THE DUEL TOMORROW? “I don’t know because, so far, my approach hasn’t worked. I think with the Shootout, it’s tough to call. It’s going to be interesting to see how everyone is going to race. In the Shootout, it’s like we dropped the green and everybody had all this anxiety and hadn’t raced all winter and it was time to go. I think that if everybody just plays it a little bit more cool for the Duels, maybe I’ll try to get up there in the mix (it up) and maybe go for the lead. If not, maybe just hang back again. Of course you’d like to win the Duel, but the thing coming out of the Duel is not having a wrecked race car. I look at it with 10, 5 to go, kind of that opening, try and take the lead and go for the win. If not, maybe make one run at it and if that doesn’t work, bail out and at that point it doesn’t matter. To me it’s still open, still tough to figure out how it’s going to play out. It depends on how everyone wants to race and how aggressive they want to be.”

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT HOW DIFFERENT THINGS WOULD BE FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO IF PENSKE WAS INTERESTED IN YOU? “No. I think every step of the way, for me, I’ve grown as a person and learned life lessons. I enjoy being in the Sprint Cup Series. This is the place that I really want to be. I’ve always been excited about it. Obviously there have been some ups and downs to get to this point right now. I think that everything happens for a reason. It’s the same thing three-years ago when I was calling Tim Cindric trying to get a ride and it didn’t work out. I never look back and think where I could have been five or six years ago. I just know that where I am, I’m very happy. I’m excited about the opportunity. For me now, it’s looking forward and trying to do everything that I can to keep this opportunity and do the right things with it.”

WHAT’S THE BEST PART OF MOVING TO A NEW TEAM? “I think it’s the same thing, good and bad. It’s always a little bit scary to make change; at least it is for me. You get into a place where you’ve been for a while and get comfortable and use to how everything is run. You get use to the people, good and bad. You know how everything daily is going to run and where you need to be. You make a change and everything is different. You have to go out there and figure out where you need to be, new schedules. You try to learn everybody and everybody’s tendencies and understand what they want. At the same time, that’s the exciting part. To see everybody new, to see the excitement and see things are run at a different race team. To me it’s been really, really good. At RPM, I really enjoyed the people there. At the end of the year when (Penske) wasn’t even on my radar, I was happy to be (at RPM). When you get an opportunity like this with the Penske organization, to be a driver of Mr. Penske, for me to walk into the shop, you just see all the pictures from (Mark) Donohue on down to Rick Mears and continuing, that to me is exciting.”

WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS THIS YEAR? “For me it’s simple; win races and make the Chase. And when you get into the Chase, it’s just like any other playoff format in other sport, anything can happen. I look at it as I was 13th when the Chase started last year, I missed (the Chase) by one spot, finished top-15 in points. To make this change and the reason I made it was to go out there and raise my game to the next level, become one of those drivers who contend for race wins every weekend. It’s so tough to win these races. You have to put yourself in position at least 20 to 25 times during the year to maybe win a couple of them. You can’t put yourself in position four or five times a year and expect to win one. Hopefully we can do that. With the change being so late to start the season, we got to hit singles before we expect homeruns, to go to Daytona and win the 500, go to Phoenix and win that race. Ultimately it’s tough to do that. You have to be consistent and not make mistakes and put us in position to win races; anything less than that will be a disappointment. That’s not the outside world, that’s me personally, that’s the way that I look at it. Shell/Pennzoil has had a lot of drivers that have won championships, a lot of races in their race cars. They expect a high level. Mr. Penske himself expects a high level. Nobody put that pressure on me as I do.”

SRT Motorsports - Dodge NSCS Gatorade Duel Race Final Quotes - Daytona
February 23, 2012 , DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.

Gatorade Duel No. 1

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
Final Race Quotes


BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T)
WHAT DID YOU GUYS LEARN FROM THE DUEL? “The Duel is its own race and its own style of racing. I thought that our Miller Lite Dodge was good, but not great. We didn’t have the best strategy for the Duel because we had a bit of a different strategy. We’re locked into the 500 and it was important for us to shake down our car and work on some things.”

YOU RAN IN A PACK, SINGLE-FILE AND THREE-WIDE. HOW WAS THE BALANCE OF YOUR CAR? “We’re still working on the overall balance of the Miller Lite Dodge. It’s changing. We’re learning about it especially with this new spoiler. It helped to get out there and race in a pack. I think we have a better idea of where our car is at today than before the Duel.”

TRAVIS GEISLER (Director of Competition, Penske Racing)
WHAT DID PENSKE RACING LEARN FROM THE RACE? “It’s a little hard to tell what all happened. Some guys got pretty aggressive with their fuel mileage package. We kind of took a different approach today to see how we would fare on Sunday. I thought at one point near the end, A.J. (Allmendinger) was going to make a run at the win. He still ended up eighth. Brad’s (Keselowski) car is a little iffy right now. We thought that we would be able to get out of the Duel without incident. We have to take a look Brad’s car close and see if we have to go to the back-up.”

SO AT THIS POINT YOU HAVEN’T MADE A DECISION ON IF BRAD HAS TO GO TO A BACK-UP CAR? “We’re not sure yet. A quick glance at the car shows that it has some damage. We’ll have to get it back and take a closer look to see it there is enough damage to make a change.”

A.J. ALLMENDINGER (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T)
WERE YOU HAPPY WITH HOW THE CAR RAN OR DO YOU HAVE SOME WORK TO DO FOR THE 500? “We’ve got a little bit of work to do. I don’t think we have the speed yet. The car drives really well. It’s slick out there. You can see the track is getting slicker and slicker. I thought the car drove okay. We needed to tighten it up a little, but still pretty good. I feel like coming up through the gears and when we’re trying to get up to speed, we still need a little more steam. We can’t quite stay attached. Overall, it was pretty good. It’s our first race we come out with the car looking normal, so that’s better than a lot of guys can say out there right now. It was a good day. I thought we had a chance at it again and in these races, it’s all you can ask for. Hopefully, we can get through the 500 clean one more time.”

ABOUT HALFWAY THROUGH THE RACE YOU PULLED OUT OF LINE WITH DRAFTING HELP, BUT DIDN’T MAKE A CHARGE TO THE FRONT. WERE YOU SURPRISED AT THAT? “Yeah, because I felt in the Shootout the top lane was working better, so I kept pulling out there to keep the momentum up. I don’t know if we just didn’t have enough cars lined up. They had like six or seven or eight lined up down at the bottom. It seemed like the bottom was a little bit quicker. If you get pushed it helps, but one time Jamie (McMurray) was pushing me and I got so loose off four and he saw it and backed out. I think everybody felt like the bottom was a little bit better and you could get down there. Overall, I felt like good about it.”

WAS THIS RACE AS WILD AS YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE? “A little bit more tame and I think that’s how the 500 is going to be. You’re going to have moments where guys get kind of antsy and they break out and they’ve got to go for the lead and then you’re going to see guys settle down. I think that’s kind of how the 500 has always been, so I felt it was about right. Guys early in the race kind of getting after it and then in the middle of the race, everybody kind of gets that lull and then that late-race yellow comes out and it’s chaos. We’ll just keep working on it. I don’t think we’re quite there yet, but we are putting themselves in position to win the last two races and that’s all you can ask for. You just hope everything works out.”

HOW DIFFICULT IS PITTING UNDER GREEN IN THE 500 GOING TO BE? “It’s hard. I’m struggling getting into the box. The thing just locks the brakes up so quickly. We’ve got to keep working on getting the car to slow down a little bit more. The pit boxes seem real greasy and trying to leave, you sat there and spun the tires. The question is how many green flag stops are we going to have? (smiles). That’s what we’ll have to see.”

Todd Gordon (Crew Chief, No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T)

“It’s just survival of the day, just making sure we get through and have something to work with for the rest of the weekend. I don’t think it’s damaged too badly, maybe a ding or two on it, but we’ll work on it and rub on it for the 500. Once you get out front, you’re going to be there. You just got to get there, that’s all.”

HOW DIFFICULT IS THE 500 GOING TO BE FOR YOU AS A CREW CHIEF BECAUSE OF THE DIFFICULTY OF PITTING UNDER GREEN? “It’s the same ol’ plate race; just kind of work your race backwards. That’s probably the biggest thing. We gathered some good information today. We were a little more conservative than we’ll probably be on Sunday.”

WAS THE RACE WILDER THAN YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE? “I actually felt it was probably calmer than the Shootout. Obviously the Shootout is all about winning, kind of got one of those all-star race feels to it, win it or nothing. It calmed down a little bit today, a couple of incidents, which you kind of expect. I think you’ll see the same thing on Sunday. I think you’ll see some instances, but I think everybody has got the bigger picture in mind. They’ve got to get to the end to win the race.”

AFTER THE SHOOTOUT AND TODAY’S RACE, WHAT IS THE MAIN THING YOU WILL HAVE TO OVERCOME TO HAVE A GOOD DAY IN THE 500? “I think survival and getting people to have confidence in you to go. We made a couple of moves today that I thought were really good moves, but got nobody to follow with us. You can’t do this thing on your own. Just making sure we build some faith with some partners. Hopefully, we can get with our own teammate and work that way together. We’re back to pack drafting and you’ve got to have faith through the whole field to be able to make that move because you can’t always count on having your teammate with you. Just getting people to have confidence in what we’re able to do.”

ROBBY GORDON (No. 7 MAPEI/Menards/SPEED Energy Dodge Charger R/T
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT MAKING YOUR WAY INTO THE DAYTONA 500? “It’s big for us. We were in a position last year, it kind of sounds crazy, we’ve won IndyCar races, I’ve won NASCAR races and we were in a position we didn’t have funding to race all the races so we found ourselves outside of the top 35. I finished 34th in the driver points, owners points we found ourselves outside the top 35. Making the Daytona 500 is the big event for NASCAR racing. When you look at it, besides pure speed, I think three guys make it on speed. Obviously Terry (Labonte) takes the past champion, which I still disagree with that. I think that should be based if you were with that team when you win the championship, not just because you win a championship, because that takes a spot from teams that are working really hard and working hard to getting into the Daytona 500. Rules are rules and we made it fair and square by being fast enough. I’m proud of my guys. I’m proud of my team and I’m proud to be in the Daytona 500.”

WHEN YOU SAW SMOKE COMING FROM YOUR CAR EARLY IN THE RACE WERE YOU CONCERNED THAT IT WAS THE ENGINE? “What it was, it looked like it was…when they changed the oil, we changed in between qualifying and racing, we change the oil. And when we changed the oil, the bottom of the radiator tray gets a lot of seepage of oil into the foam as we went at speed. We were running hot yesterday at practice, so we changed it last night. We added some oil to it and changed the weight of the oil. It was in that tray. And it was splashing up onto the motor and I was like, ‘Man, this thing is going to blow up.’ It kind of played into my hand because when the race started, I wasn’t sure if I should go balls to the wall and take a chance of being in one of those wrecks, or be around for the last dance. Every time that we come to restrictor-plate races, we’re normally around for the last dance and if we are, we have a good shot at running up front. It was good for us and good for our team. It’s good to be in the Daytona 500.”

YOU DIDN’T CONSIDER PITTING AT THE START? WERE YOU RUNNING HOT ALL DAY? DID YOU THINK THAT YOU HAD TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? “We’re going to have to do something on Sunday. This is our motor that we do with Arrington. If we can get a Penske motor for the 500, that’s obviously going to be our No. 1 priority for here until the 500. And for Dodge, it’s obviously the right thing because there are only three Dodges in the race and at Talladega we were strong. I’m not sure if Roger (Penske) is going to give us one; I know that’s he’s not going to give us one, I’ll still pay for one. If we can get one of their back-up motors, I think we would be in better shape for the 500. Now that we’ve made the race, and it’s kind of a crazy business to say, ‘Ok, we’ve made the race, you’re going to get $260,000. I’m going to go write a big check to Roger if he’ll give me a motor. It’s not like he’d keep the money at the end of the day in this sport.”

EVEN THOUGH YOU HAD TO KIND OF CONSERVE EVERYTHING WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING HOT AND ALL THAT, WHAT WAS YOUR PERSPECTIVE OF HOW EVERYBODY RACED WITH THESE RULES; WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO SEE ON SUNDAY? "You know, we don't make the rules. Obviously, we play by the rules. I think right now the grill opening is too small. I don't know if other guys are running 230 all the time. We were 230 to 250 all the time on water temperature. Even if I pulled over, I couldn't get it down. An engine is happy at 220, 210. I think we might have too small of an opening to do that with the size of the radiator. We're doing all we can do, like all the teams. We're working as hard as we possibly can. Most important thing for me, I didn't care if it ran 300 degrees the last few laps, we were going to do anything we could to make the Daytona 500, which is what we did. I think when we crossed the line, it was 265 or it was about 300.”

I TALKED TO TERRY ABOUT WHY HE PARKED IT. HE SAID THAT WAS THE ONLY CAR THEY HAD, THEY NEEDED TO SAVE IT FOR THE 500. DOES THAT CHANGE YOUR OPINION AT ALL AS ANOTHER SMALL TEAM? WHAT DO YOU THINK THE ROLE SHOULD BE FOR THE PAST CHAMPS AGAIN? "Obviously, I’ve got a lot of respect for Terry. This is not a Terry Labonte thing. There are only eight cars that make the Daytona 500. He takes one of those spots, now seven guys make the Daytona 500. Four make it in qualifying races, three make it on speed. We're a small team, too. I guess I should hire Kurt Busch and I could put my other car in the show, too. It's just not right. Why take a free ride when the rest of us have to bust our butts to get into the 500? It is what it is. It's the rules. Like I said, we don't make the rules, we just play by them, and sometimes you can manipulate them.”

YOU’VE HAD A ROLLERCOASTER OVER THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS. ARE YOU READY FOR A CALM DAYTONA 500? WHAT ARE YOU HOPING FOR ON SUNDAY? “My life right now, there’s never a calm day. You know, I think if you have a calm day in life today, in this economy, you’re going to get passed. You better be on the gas every day and that’s what we’re doing. Going back to South America, we had the fastest cars down there in Dakar and I’m really proud about that and proud of the guys for doing that. It’s amazing that a small, little privateer team can take on a factory teams like we did.”

WITH ALL THE RACING THAT YOU DO, HOW DO YOU RATE RACING YOUR WAY INTO THE 500? “You know, I get that top 35 rule. I’ve been out of the Daytona 500 because of it before. When I started my race team, I believe it was in 2005, we had Jim Beam here. Great sponsor, finished seventh, exactly where we finished today. In 2005, we went home. So it’s crazy that you can actually finish seventh in the 150s which would put you 14th on the grid and you load up your stuff and go back to North Carolina. So I’ve been in that position and I get it. And I’m not complaining about the rules. It’s just really tough these days to get in and that’s the point I was trying to make, not so much Terry Labonte, 32 car. I don’t really care about them. I focus on our 7 car. We just try to do the best job we can and we made the Daytona 500 so I’m really proud of my guys.”

HOW MANY GUYS DO YOU HAVE ON YOUR TEAM? “If you want to count the receptionist/parts lady/merchandise sales, or do you want to talk about the marketing guys or the person who makes the decals part-time? We’ve got about 10 people that do a lot of jobs. Not only do we race race cars, but we’re building the brand of SPEED and there are different groups in different towns that do that. But on the NASCAR team, I think we’re down to seven or eight guys right now too. And it’s not the fact that there are not guys out there ‘because there are plenty of very capable, good guys out there. It’s the fact there’s no sponsors out there. And without sponsors, you can’t hire people. We’re in a bad state right here. It’s tough. It’s really, really tough and we don’t have anybody on the hook.”

DO YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT GO ACROSS FROM YOUR OFF-ROAD TEAM TO THE CUP TEAM? CAN YOU FLOAT PEOPLE BETWEEN THE TWO TEAMS? “I’m glad you asked that because on the off-road team, except when we go to Dakar, we take 21 guys to Dakar and we hire guys for the month. But when we normally race off-road, there are three guys that work in that shop, too. And the guy that runs the water jet that makes parts that we ship back and forth across country and the machinists are about all the guys that go back and forth besides when I take some of these guys to the Dakar. And we’re doing everything we can do make it go full-circle and I say it’s working. We’re not comfortable doing it, but it’s working. We’re still racing, we’re still out there putting ourselves in position to win races and we just made the Daytona 500 so I’m really, really proud of the guys that are working in the shop. You hear people talking and talking about and complaining 40 or 50 hours a week. Our guys work a half a day every day, that’s 12 hours.”

CONGRATULATIONS ON MAKING THE DAYTONA 500. “Thank you. I’m proud of be here. I’m happy to be racing NASCAR and looking forward to the 500.”

Keys For Success


KEYS FOR SUCCESS: Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (Friday, Feb. 24, 2012) – Each race weekend, selected SRT Motorsports Engineers, Penske Racing engineers and crew chiefs, drivers or engine specialists give their insight on the ‘Keys for Success’ for the upcoming race. This week, Howard Comstock, SRT Motorsports Engineering - provides the keys for Sunday’s Sprint Cup race.

Track: Daytona International Speedway (Race 1 of 36 in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series)

Race: Daytona 500 (200 laps / 500.0 miles)

Trivia Question: Who was the first Dodge driver to win the Daytona 500? (Answer Below)

HOWARD COMSTOCK (SRT Motorsports Engineering)

Keep Cool: “It looks like we’re going to catch a break and get some cooler weather for the weekend which really should help. The temperatures are in the 60s rather than the 80s on Thursday. You’ve got 20 degrees more help from Mother Nature in keeping the engine water and oil temperatures at acceptable levels. We saw Thursday in the Duel races that there were some teams that had a lot of trouble with spitting out water during the race. Elevated engine temperatures are one thing. You can get out from behind somebody, get a breath of fresh air, get the thing cooled down and you can fix elevated engine temperatures. The point where it starts hurting you is if the pop off valve allows water to escape from the system. Now, if you can get the temperature back down, you’ve got less water to work with so the next cycle the car is going to heat up faster and you’re going to shoot more water out. It’s a dangerous spiral for the team. The only way to put water back in it is to stop on pit road. And the danger there is now you’ve got a 250 degree temperature engine and you put 75 degree water in it, which is another shock to the system. Drivers are going to have to be careful about keeping water in the car.”

Aero Grip: “We’ve taken a lot of spoiler off these cars and it makes them more unstable, especially in the draft, and we’ve seen all the races here at Speedweek where just the smallest nudge at the wrong time can upset the cars and with less spoiler on the rear deck we’ve got less down force to keep ‘em stuck to the racetrack. You get one little wiggle and it looks like you can’t survive a smaller wiggle than we’ve seen in the past. We used to see that you get a little wiggle and that spoiler catches some air and it’ll straighten car back out and with the deck spoiler as short as it is now we’ve lost that. It’s going to be 500 miles of being careful with your engine temperatures and being careful with your aerodynamics. If you are a driver, don’t get stuck in a bad spot (laughs). Everybody has got the same spoiler so everybody has got basically the same aerodynamic package. You’re going to have to be careful that your buddies aren’t helping you too much, careful that you’re not trying to help somebody in front of you too much and get them spinning. Once you spin out the guy in front of you there’s a pretty good risk that you’re going to be involved in his crash.”

Pit Strategy: “I heard drivers in the Shootout and the Duel that said we don’t have enough grip as it is so tires will help me. So I would say that earlier in the 500 you may see more guys going for four tires try to just make sure they’ve got that little to keep ‘em from getting turned around. It’s not surprising when you look at how short that deck spoiler is.”






Trivia Question Answer: Richard Petty in 1973, his fourth of seven Daytona 500 victories but his first in a Dodge – his three previous victories all came behind the wheel of a Plymouth. Fellow Dodge driver Buddy Baker won the pole for the 500 with a lap of 185.662 mph.
