DODGE NATIONWIDE QUOTES
“I am really excited about heading back to ORP. Last year was the first time I’d raced there, and while we didn’t have a great finish, I feel like I learned a lot about racing there. As a driver, these are the kinds of tracks that I love to race. It reminds me of Saturday night showdown races. My dad has a tire shop just around the corner from the track, and as far back as I can remember, we’d go and watch the races there. Penske Racing has a lot of history at the Brickyard, and I’d like nothing more than to make some history for them at the little track as well.”
Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger


“We’ve been strong on the short tracks this season. I think ORP is a great place for us to regain some of the momentum we have lost over the last couple of races. We had a pretty big lead in the points heading into Chicago and we’ve seen that dwindle a bit. When you have two weeks like we’ve had, it makes you thankful that you had a big lead. It would be different if we weren’t competitive over the last few weeks, but that’s not the case. Paul Wolfe and all the guys continue to give me fast Discount Tire Dodges. We’re definitely not in a slump, but we need to get back on track.”
Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger

Dodge Motorsports Notes & Quotes - NNS Race Finap - ORP

INDIANAPOLIS , Jul 24, 2010 - Saturday, July 24, 2010


BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger) Finished 8th

DID IT COME DOWN TO THAT LAST PIT CALL? “Yeah, it was the right pit call (to stay out and not pit). We just had clutch problems and were afraid to stop because we weren’t sure we could get back rolling again and if you do, you’re going to lose a bunch of positions. I support Paul (Wolfe, crew chief) in that (decision). We just didn’t catch any breaks all night. Before we even caught the green flag, we were all tore up. It was just one of those days. I’m really happy to get out of here with an eighth-place finish instead of being behind the wall putting a radiator in it. Looking at it from that perspective, you kind of count your blessings and try to take your eighth and move on.”

WHAT HAPPENED AT THE START OF THE RACE? “Somebody brake-checked in front. Usually it happens three cars in front of you, so I don’t know if it was the leader or what.”

YOU HAD SOME RE-STARTS AND RACING NEXT TO CARL AND THE TWO OF YOU RACED EACH OTHER CLEAN: “Yeah, I thought it was pretty decent racing by most everybody, just good hard short-tracking.”

IS THERE A SENSE OF RELIEF NOW THAT THIS RACE IS OVER AFTER A LONG WEEK? “Oh yeah, no doubt. We have a few gremlins on this car that we have to work on and get it a little better. It was a fast race car. We’re just fighting some gremlins and we’ll get them fixed and be a contender with it.”

ANOTHER SOLID POINTS NIGHT: “Yeah, I think so. We gave up a few points, probably 30 or so. We ran solid all night and just didn’t catch the breaks we needed.”

JUSTIN ALLGAIER (No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger) Finished 7th
"It was a good solid run for the Verizon Wireless Dodge. Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn’t work with us. We made a pit call to stay out, thinking the rain was going to come. It didn’t. At the end of the day, it’s another top 10 and a long way from last year. Man, I’ll tell you, last year we were not good at all. To be able to come back and salvage a top 10, that was great. That was the most fun 200 laps I think I’ve ever had in my life. We just had a blast out there, really enjoyed it. It was fun racing my teammate (Brad Keselowski) there on the last lap for the spot. Clean racing, that’s what it’s all about.

“Early in the race, we were probably as good as anybody. For whatever reason, we just got off a little bit there at the end and wasn’t able to go for the transition spot like I wanted too. I think the moisture and air kind of freed up the track as well. It stinks that we fell off like we did; but all in all, it was a great night for these guys. They did an awesome job. That’s what it’s all about.

NEXT WEEK, IT’S ANOTHER SHORT-TRACK RACE (IOWA); ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO RACING AT THE .875-MILE TRACK? “I love Iowa, one of my favorite tracks on the circuit. We were really good there last year. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the win. We almost sat on the pole, tied for the pole, and raced good all night. I’m excited about going back there. The Verizon Dodge Charger has been really strong and I’m just looking forward to the next couple of races, running really strong and gain some of these points back.”
